Ontic Takes On New Aftermarket Engine Parts Work

 - February 22, 2019, 11:24 AM

Aircraft legacy parts manufacturer and aftermarket support provider Ontic has entered an exclusive license agreement with a UK-based OEM to manufacture engine pressure transmitters, fuel flow transmitters, and fluid monitoring chip detectors. Ontic said those components are used on engines that include the GE CF6 turbofan, Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6 turboprop, and GE T700 turboshaft.

Under the agreement, Ontic will continue Part 21 new-build manufacturing and Part 145 repairs and spares for the unidentified UK company. Ontic said users of those parts account for a large installed base of aircraft that includes the Boeing 747, 757, and 767; Airbus A300 and A330; Pilatus PC-9 and PC-21; Beechcraft King Air; and Bombardier CRJ900. “This license of product families in particular highlights Ontic’s capability to strategically assist OEMs with the ongoing support of their non-core products, allowing the OEM to progress and concentrate on its strategic priorities,” said Ontic president Gareth Hall.

The new license follows four licenses Ontic signed with different OEMs in 2018, which the company said it will support from its Chatsworth, California base. Ontic, a unit of BBA Aviation, also operates manufacturing and MRO facilities in Creedmoor, North Carolina; Plainview, New York; Cheltenham, UK; and Singapore.
