Boeing Hires Australia’s Quickstep to Produce Harrier Parts

July 27 2020

Boeing has hired Quickstep Technologies to supply the United States Marine Corps’ AV-8B Harrier fleet with 260 urgent, obsolete aircraft parts. Sydney-based Quickstep Technologies supplied Boeing Global Services with the required composite parts so that a number of grounded aircraft could rapidly resume flying. With a 16,000 square meter composite manufacturing plant at Bankstown Airport in Sydney, Quickstep manufactured the parts at short notice after they could not be sourced domestically in the US.

Boeing Defense Australia Supply Chain Management Director Nick Gothard said it was invaluable to have key industry partners like Quickstep who could respond quickly to help Boeing keep a key customer’s aircraft operational. “Boeing’s vital sustainment activities on the United States Marine Corps’ AV-8B Harrier fleet is boosted by our partnerships with small-and-medium enterprises like Quickstep,” Gothard said. “This collaboration between Boeing and Quickstep shows Australian industry’s great potential to find innovative solutions for our global customers.”
