Quickstep Holdings has announced it has delivered the first shipset of C‐130J wing flaps to Lockheed Martin.
The company was awarded the tender to manufacture wing flaps for the C‐130J aircraft in March 2012 and signed a U.S. $75 million memorandum of agreement (MOA) in December 2013.
The delivery was completed ahead of schedule and is the first of 24 shipsets to be manufactured under an initial US$12m (A$13.38m) purchase order which was included in the MOA, and which are scheduled to be delivered at a rate of about two ship sets per month.
Quickstep says it has also secured a second purchase order under the MOA valued at US$9.8m (A$10.9m) million for the manufacture and delivery of a further 12 further shipsets from 2015.
