Quickstep Holdings Limited has delivered the first ship set of C-130J wing flaps to global security and aerospace company, Lockheed Martin.
Quickstep was awarded the tender to manufacture wing flaps for Lockheed Martin’s C-130J Super Hercules aircraft in March 2012 and signed a US $75 million memorandum of agreement (MOA) in December 2013.
The delivery, completed ahead of schedule, is the first of 24 ship sets of wing flaps to be manufactured by Quickstep under an initial US $12 million purchase order which is included in the MOA.
The ship sets will be delivered at an approximate rate of two ship sets per month.
This milestone also represents completion of the non-recurring preliminary contract awarded to Quickstep in August 2012.
Quickstep has also secured a second purchase order under the MOA valued at US$9.8 million from Lockheed Martin.
This order covers manufacture and delivery of 12 further ship sets beginning in the first half of 2015.
