Rolls-Royce: A valued partner

Rolls-Royce is a Power Systems company: for more than a hundred years we have been providing power for aircraft, ships and land applications. We have established a strong position in global markets including civil and defence aerospace, marine and energy.

At Rolls-Royce, we combine cutting edge technologies with passionate and highly skilled individuals to produce products and services that operate in some of the world's most challenging environments.

We have a broad customer base comprising more than 300 airlines, 4,000 corporate and utility aircraft and helicopter operators, 160 armed forces, more than 4,000 marine customers, including 70 navies, and energy customers in more than 80 countries.

Our underlying revenues in 2013 totalled £15.5 billion, of which more than half came from the provision of aftermarket services. Rolls-Royce employs over 55,000 people in offices, manufacturing and service facilities in over 50 countries.

In 2013, we invested £1.1 billion on research and development, two thirds of which has the objective of further improving the environmental performance of our products. We support a global network of 29 University Technology Centres, including our latest addition in Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, and seven globally distributed Advanced Manufacturing Centres which enables us to remain at the forefront of scientific research and innovation.

We have maintained an office in Singapore since the 1950s and our presence continues to expand along with the development of Singapore as an international business centre and its strategic location in the thriving Asia Pacific region. Along with our joint venture partners, we employ more than 2,200 people in the city state.

Today, Singapore is a key business hub for us and all our major business sectors are strongly represented.

We play a significant role in Singapore’s civil aerospace industry directly and through a range of joint ventures, and we account for over 15 per cent of the country’s aerospace output.

In February 2012, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong opened our most modern facility to date. The Rolls-Royce Seletar Campus is located on an area of 154,000 square metres at Seletar Aerospace Park. The Campus includes state-of-the-art assembly, testing, manufacturing, research and training facilities. In November 2012, the first Trent aero engine was produced in Singapore and the Trent 900 was successfully delivered to Airbus.

The S$700 million Rolls-Royce Seletar Campus is the first of its kind to bring advanced aerospace high-value manufacturing to Singapore. In doing so, it significantly increases the Group’s global manufacturing capacity in order to deliver against an order book of £71.6 billion (as at Dec 2013).

The Campus is our first facility outside the UK to assemble and test Trent aero engines, as well as manufacture hollow titanium Wide Chord Fan Blades, a unique capability and technology, which has played a key role in the success of the Rolls-Royce Trent aero engine family.

In addition, the Campus houses an Advanced Technology Centre which leads cutting-edge research in materials support technology, computational engineering, electrical power and control systems, and innovative manufacturing technologies; and a Regional Training Centre where our customers and employees in the region are provided world-class training facilities and internationally accredited qualifications across civil aerospace, marine and energy, the first such facility in Asia.

Singapore is also a major hub for our Marine business. A ship design office, which carries out work for offshore supply vessels, merchant, tugs, over 35 UT design vessels and specialist naval sectors in Asia, was established in Singapore in 1999. Singapore is also the location of Rolls-Royce marine global repair and overhaul service centres. In 2012, the Group established a regional support centre at Tuas, which serves as part of a global technical support network offering customers 24/7 assistance.
