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.
