Lockheed recognizes Heroux-Devtek as key supplier for F-35
Héroux-Devtek Inc. has announced that its Laval, Que. facility, which manufactures a door uplock system for the F-35 program, has received an important recognition of its performance by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics in Fort Worth, Tex. The award recognizes the exceptional quality and on-time delivery of Héroux-Devtek's products for the F-35 program from the Laval facility. The award is given to the top 25 suppliers out of approximately 1,200.
Héroux-Devtek also extended its current agreement with Lockheed Martin for the production of the F-35 door uplock systems at the Laval facility. This contract covers deliveries in calendar years 2017 and 2018 for the LRIP 9 and 10 production lots. The door uplock systems were designed and qualified by Héroux-Devtek’s engineering team under a contract signed in 2004 and have since been produced by the Corporation for all F-35 variants.
“Héroux-Devtek is proud to be recognized by Lockheed Martin for its exceptional performance, which reflects the talent and dedication of our employees. Our team recognizes the importance of the F-35 program for both organizations and is firmly committed to achieving success. This program allowed Héroux-Devtek to develop a unique expertise in our field and we see additional opportunities on this program in the future,” said Martin Brassard, vice-president and chief operating officer of Héroux-Devtek.
