Quickstep Secures Second Long Term Agreement to Supply F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Components

june 25 2012

Quickstep Holdings Limited, an Australian-based advanced composites manufacturer, has informed that it has secured a second Long Term Agreement (LTA) with Northrop Grumman Corporation to manufacture parts for the international F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program.

The LTA covers production of "Group 2" JSF components until 2020, and follows the LTA signed in February 2011 for Group 1 JSF components, for which manufacturing is now underway. Group 2 parts represent more complex aircraft components, including portions of the main F-35 structure and supports. The first Purchase Order for Group 2 parts is expected to be received in July 2012.

The signing of the LTA follows Quickstep's successful completion of a qualification process to demonstrate production readiness for the manufacture of Group 2 parts.
