Alcoa announced plans to further expand its global aerospace business through a definitive agreement to acquire privately held TITAL. The acquisition will strengthen Alcoa’s global position to capture increasing demand for advanced jet engine components made of titanium. This transaction will further position Alcoa to capitalize on strong growth in the commercial aerospace sector. Alcoa projects a compounded annual commercial jet growth rate of 7% through 2019 and sees a current 9-year production order book at 2013 delivery rates. Almost 70% of TITAL’s revenues are expected to come from commercial aerospace sales in 2019. In 2013, the company generated revenues of approximately $96M, more than half of which came from titanium products. The acquisition will establish titanium casting capabilities in Europe for Alcoa, while expanding its aluminum casting capacity. TITAL employs more than 650 people, primarily in Bestwig, Germany. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
