Rolls-Royce is a global company, providing integrated power solutions to the aerospace and marine/industrial power systems markets. Our vision is to deliver ‘better power for a changing world’. We create power. Our core business is the gas turbine and this is used to power aircraft, ships and electrical generators. Rolls-Royce is probably best known for making engines for the world’s biggest airliners and advanced military aircraft. However, we also produce low-emission power systems for ships - some of which we design ourselves - make critical equipment and safety systems for the nuclear industry and, power offshore platforms and major pipelines for the oil and gas industry. We support our customers with a global network of service centres.
