  • J.J. Churchill joins the Sonora AeroEngine Cluster

    Farnborough, U.K.,- J.J. Churchill Ltd., a U.K. precision machining company specialized in the manufacturing of gas- turbine airfoils and the State of Sonora, Mexico have signed today an agreement in support to J.J. Churchill’s investment in the State. J.J. Churchill, a company founded in 1937, is a major supplier to ‘blue-chip’ OEMs such as Rolls-Royce, BAE Systems, Cummins, Perkins, Siemens and Alstom. Earlier last month, the company announced an investment of £6 million ($9.4 million USD) for a new facility in Sonora, Mexico for the manufacturing of compressor airfoils. According to Andrew Churchill, the Managing Director of the company, this investment represents a significant step in the company plan to solidify its status as a “preferred supplier” with its main OEM customers. The Sonoran factory will allow JJ Churchill to increase its competitiveness on high volume components. With the addition of this new Mexican facility, J.J. Churchill will now be strongly present in all the three stages of the product production lifecycle; namely at the inception of new products; then during its full blown volume production and finally, at the end of the cycle, in supporting the demand in the aftermarket. Sonora was chosen after a careful review of several other low-cost countries and other Mexican States, supplemented added Mr. Churchill. “The fact that J.J. Churchill could find most of the required special processes and services essential to the manufacturing of its products within a radius of 8 km has played a significant role in the decision of the company to establish in Guaymas. There is no other cluster with such level of integration.” “The investment of J.J. Churchill is an additional confirmation of our vocation in the segment ofstrategic drive towards attracting gas-turbine components manufacturing” says, the Secretary of Economy Mr. Moisés Gómez Reyna. He added: “J.J. Churchill grows the capabilities of our cluster that now covers investment casting, precision machining, brazing, heat treating and coating, and that also benefit from the presence of an International Procurement Office of Rolls-Royce.” About Economic Development Council for Sonora The Economic Development Council for Sonora (EDCS), a para-state organization of the State Government of Sonora, is in charge of promoting and supporting foreign investments.
