Parker Hannifin has signed two agreements with major aerospace companies, which could net the company some $7.5 billion over the life of the programs. It will be partnering with Rolls-Royce on the Trent XWB engine for the new Airbus A350XWB family of airliners. Parker will provide the complete hydraulic and fuel systems for the A350XWB, as well as the fuel tank inerting system.

Meanwhile, Parker has also been chosen by Bombardier to design and produce four systems for the new C Series. Included are the exclusive supply of the entire fly-by-wire control system for a period of 10 years for all new Bombardier widebody programs, fuel tank inerting and fully integrated fuel and hydraulic systems.
