Quickstep, Australia announced Monday that it has won $ 75 million contract to manufacture additional 12 sets plus spares of C-130J Super Hercules wing flaps from Lockheed Martin.
The purchase order takes the total cumulative order to 67 wing flap sets, and comprises part of Quickstep's overarching US $75 million memorandum of agreement (MOA) to manufacture wing flaps for the Lockheed Martin C-130J Super Hercules aircraft. The outstanding orders are for deliveries through 2015 and 2016, with 19 complete wing sets delivered so far in 2014.
“We are delighted to receive our third additional purchase order from Lockheed Martin since making our first delivery of C-130J wing flaps in February 2014," said Quickstep executive Chairman, Tony Quick.
Lockheed Martin awarded Quickstep the tender to manufacture wing flaps for its C-130J Super Hercules aircraft in March 2012, and signed the US $75 million MOA in December 2013. Over the life of the MOA, Quickstep will supply in excess of 120 sets of carbon-fiber composite flaps through to 2018.
