Rolls-Royce wins a pair of military contracts

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Rolls-Royce Corp.’s Indianapolis operation this week was awarded a $203 million contract modification that calls for the company to provide ongoing services for the propulsion systems that power the C-130J military transport aircraft.

The military contractor will include logistics and engineering services, program management support, spares and technical data to the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center at Robins Air Force Base in Georgia.

The deal, announced by the Department of Defense on Monday, exercises the fifth year of an existing contract. Nearly $50 million of the funding already has been appropriated.

Last week, the local operation won a $22.2 million modification to repair engines on the Navy’s CV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft. About 30 percent of that work will be performed in Indianapolis, with the balance done in Oakland, Calif.

Rolls Royce’s Indianapolis manufacturing facility employs about 4,300, making the British aerospace firm the city’s second-largest manufacturer behind Eli Lilly and Co.

Last year, the local facility landed more than $500 million in U.S. government work.
