About us

Never heard of PCC? Ever been on an aeroplane? Then you have already trusted us with your life.

Airbus, Boeing, GE, Rolls-Royce and many of the other leading aircraft and engine manufacturers 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 with 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.

Our headquarters 

PCC is headquartered in the US and has recently been acquired by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Group for over $37bn. Worldwide we have 162 manufacturing locations (14 in the UK alone) and are proud to employ over 30,000 people. The aerospace sector is enjoying strong, sustained growth and we fully expect to grow as a result. But, we don’t just rely on aerospace; in addition we are world leaders in titanium and nickel based alloys, both of which are used extensively in our products. We have also built a substantial presence in the power generation field with products ranging from industrial gas turbine components to extruded seamless pipe for power stations.

Work with us

PCC is a fast-paced, nimble and dynamic place to work. It isn't a place for those that lack self-belief or want a quiet life; we stretch our people and challenge them to raise their game daily. For the people that thrive in this environment the career opportunities are tremendous.

We have an excellent graduate entry Operations Management Development Programme, designed to find and develop future operational leaders who excel in leading our manufacturing operations. We also welcome applications from talented individuals who have a more engineering career in mind, as well as from students looking for industrial placements.
