You may not have heard of us, but Airbus, Boeing, GE, Rolls-Royce and many of the other leading aircraft and engine manufacturers have and they depend on us for critical engine components, fasteners and structural castings. So, the chances are that every time you have flown you have been surrounded by our work.
The Precision Castparts Corp (PCC) Group of companies is one of the world's leading suppliers to the aerospace (civil and military) and power generation industries. We specialise in the manufacture of complex metal components that have a wide variety of applications, particularly in engines and airframes. This ranges from turbine blades for the hottest part of the jet engine, large wing ribs for the A380 to the fasteners that secure the wings to the fuselage and hold the plane together.
With such critical applications there is no room for error; so, we insist on quality, not just in materials and processes but also in the people that we recruit.
PCC is based in Portland, Oregon with a strong European presence and we employ 28,600 employees with 156 locations (13 in the UK alone) in 14 countries. We are a Fortune 500 company and are experiencing a strong recovery as the aerospace segment comes out of recession. But, we don't just rely on aerospace, in addition we are building a substantial presence in the power generation field with products ranging from industrial gas turbine components to extruded seamless pipe for power stations.
PCC is a fast paced, nimble and dynamic place to work. It isn't a place for those that lack self belief; we stretch our people and challenge them to perform constantly. For the people that thrive in this environment the career opportunities are tremendous.
We have an excellent graduate entry Management Development Programme designed to find and develop our future leaders. We also welcome applications for industrial placements from engineering students.
