Melbourne-based Lovitt Technologies Australia (LTA) has been awarded a contract for work in the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program.

Lockheed Martin
has contracted the LTA to produce titanium keels in a three-year contract worth an estimated US$2.945 million.

LTA participated in a global competition, winning this order for more than 300 parts, guaranteeing high technology work at the company’s Montmornecy, Victoria facility over the next three years. 

The titanium longeron keels form part of the linkage between two structural bulkheads in the aft portion of the inner wing assembly and provide structural integrity of the aircraft wings.

“We are pleased that our offer was selected for this work on the F-35.  Being a key supplier on the most high-profile defence program in the history of the world, gives our company the opportunity to showcase Lovitt Technologies’ capabilities as a provider of high-tech, precision engineering to the aerospace and defence sectors,” Marcus Ramsay, managing director, Lovitt Technologies Australia said. 

“We pride ourselves on having the flexibility and resourcefulness to address our customers’ unique requirements in order to deliver maximum value on the F-35 program.”
