GE CELMA and RHINESTAHL CTS CELEBRATE FIRST “MADE IN BRAZIL” LEAP ENGINE TOOLING
Rhinestahl CTS Establishes Local Supply Chain to Service Engine Tooling Customer
Mason, OH, – August 22, 2019 – GE Celma and Rhinestahl CTS celebrated the successful setup of two qualified companies in Brazil with capabilities to manufacture LEAP engine tooling. Rhinestahl CTS, a licensed provider for LEAP tooling for CFM, a 50/50 joint company between GE and Safran Aircraft Engines, led the identification and certification initiative to ensure critical quality and lead time requirements associated with GE Celma’s operational demands were successfully met.
“High quality tooling and accurate lead times are critical for our MRO operations,” stated Mr. Rafael Aymone, GE Celma’s Overhaul Leader, “and Rhinestahl CTS met these important requirements through ‘thinking out of the box” and establishing a local supply chain to ensure our performance demands were successfully met.”
Rhinestahl CTS employs a strict 18-month supplier certification process necessary to qualify for its supply chain operations. Once certified, suppliers must maintain superior performance metrics to continue the relationship within Rhinestahl CTS’ world-class supply chain network.
“At Rhinestahl CTS, we go above and beyond to deliver engine tooling solutions that meet the operational demands of our customers worldwide, “stated Alan Oak, COO. “GE Celma is an exceptional MRO and it was critical for them to have local support to meet their LEAP engine tooling demands for high quality and accurate lead times.”
“Rhinestahl CTS has been a good partner to GE Celma,” stated Mr. Julio Talon, GE Celma’s Plant Leader, “their team went the extra mile to help us achieve our LEAP engine tooling requirements and we look forward to continuing to work with them into the future.”
