Quickstep Selected To Manufacture C-130J Composite Wing Flaps

march 13 2012

Australian company Quickstep Holdings Ltd has secured the tender to manufacture carbon fibre composite wing flaps for the C-130J Hercules military transport aircraft. Quickstep was selected as sole source supplier for the C-130J flaps following an international tender programme by Lockheed Martin. The contract could potentially be worth $75-100 million over five years

The first aircraft parts are scheduled to be delivered in 2014.

The C-130J programme represents Quickstep’s second aerospace programme following the start of manufacturing for the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter in 2011.

Lockheed Martin launched the tender process for the C-130J components after current supplier, Boeing Aerostructures Australia, announced that it will relocate from Sydney to Melbourne. Quickstep has secured a right of first refusal on most of Boeing’s existing C-130J manufacturing facilities at Bankstown Airport in Sydney.

The C-130J Hercules aircraft has been in continuous production since 1954, with Lockheed Martin delivering its 2400th C-130J aircraft in January 2012.
