Liebherr Aerospace Brasil entered a new partnership with PTI Technologies and signed a contract to become the supplier of hydraulic manifolds for Embraer’s latest aircraft. Liebherr Aerospace Brasil welcomed several PTI senior leaders to its facility in Guaratingueta (Brazil) in the fall of 2019 for the celebration of the first strategic collaboration between the two companies. 

Tadeu Coelho, Liebherr Aerospace Brasil’s Financial and Administrative Director, stated: “It was a pleasure to host the PTI Executive Team at our state-of-the-art facility. We are very happy and honored to become a supplier for PTI, as this marks a significant milestone that puts us one step closer to our vision of diversifying our customer base, i.e. entering the American market.”  

PTI's Senior Director of Supply Chain Management, Larry Abel, commented, “Liebherr Aerospace Brasil’s lean initiatives, process controls and cutting-edge technologies will allow them to be competitive on PTI programs. We are looking forward to a successful partnership with Liebherr to improve our overall customer satisfaction.”

Mario Coelho, Quality and Industrial Manager at Liebherr Aerospace Brasil, noted: “The visit from PTI was very successful. We were able to showcase our capabilities, knowhow, lean methodology and to delight our new partner with no nonconformities found during the audit. We shared our continuous improvement philosophy and best practices, and at the end of the visit we agreed on the new goals set forth for 2020.”

PTI will begin placing orders with Liebherr for three different kinds of manifolds to support the Embraer E2 during the first quarter of 2020.
