Bankstown. Quickstep secures order

Carbon composites manufacturer Quickstep Technologies, at Bankstown Airport, has secured its largest aerospace production order to date. The purchase order covers the manufacture and delivery of composite carbon fibre wing flaps for 24 Lockheed Martin C-130J Hercules aircraft. Deliveries are expected to commence December quarter of 2013. The order is valued at US$12 million. The Lockheed Martin C130-J flap program is the second aerospace program awarded to Quickstep, following its contracts to produce components for the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter program. It is expected to generate up to $700 million in revenues for Quickstep over the next 20 years. Quickstep expects to be one of the largest Australian contributors to the JSF Program.
