Victoria-based Lovitt Technologies has been awarded a contract from Boeing to supply machined parts for the global F/A-18 Super Hornet fleet.

Under global supply chain (GSC) program, Lovitt will build on its existing relationship with the US manufacturer under which it has supplied parts for the V-22 Osprey, Chinook and P-8 Poseidon since 2009.

Minister for Defence Materiel Mike Kelly said Boeing’s global supply chain continued to provide opportunities for Australian industry.

“The GSC program continues to provide an avenue for competitive Australian companies seeking to win work with international defence primes,” Kelly said. “Their success enables them to be more competitive at home and is a key component in maintaining a viable local industry in support of the Australian Defence Force.

“I congratulate Lovitt Technologies on its recent success in this challenging and exacting field and thank Boeing’s Office of Australian Industry Capability for its professional commitment to Australia’s defence industry through the Global Supply Chain Program,” Kelly added.
