The manifestation of UMW Manufacturing & Engineering’s HVM vision is clearly proven through the Rolls-Royce Fan Case Supply Agreement, which awards UMW to become the first Tier-1 supplier to Rolls-Royce in Malaysia. The project focuses on the production of Trent 1000 and Trent 7000 fan case for Rolls-Royce, and is an endorsement of UMW as Rolls-Royce’s engine fan case supplier.

Through UMW Aerospace, a company under UMW Manufacturing & Engineering Division, the excellent progress achieved in this project since 2015 has become a testament towards UMW’s ability to become a capable partner to OEMs and Tier-1 suppliers.

The completion of the UMW aerospace fan-casing factory within record time is a manifestation of UMW’s ability to be a capable partner to OEMs and Tier-1s.

The 275,000 sq. ft. UMW Aerospace OEM and Tier-1 aero fan casing factory, complete with full temperature controls, Industry 4.0 precision high-end machining, automation and robotics were completed within only 10.5 months.

To complete the state-of-the-art factory within 15 months from signing the initial contract with Rolls-Royce in October 2015 demonstrates the capability and expertise of UMW Land in delivering fast-track projects even with special requirements.

The specialised High Value Manufacturing factory is built with the future in mind and is Industry 4.0 ready.
