Richard Allender, President of the Ellwood Closed Die Group, stated ”GE’s willingness to place additional Leap business with ETFH is a testament to GE’s confidence in ETFH, and our excellent, long standing relationship. The hard work, focus, and performance of our team, from Business Development through Engineering and Operations, have made wins like this possible. We are extremely pleased to expand and continue our partnership on GE’s most critical engine platform.”
