By Business Wire News
Kaman Aerosystems (Kaman) announced today that its UK operation has been successful in securing a five-year contract extension on the Gulfstream G280 program for the supply of Ailerons and Winglets to Triumph Aerostructures. This takes the period of program deliveries out to 2019 and firmly consolidates Kaman as a key supplier on the G280 program. The contract extension has an expected value of more than $27M over the next 5 years.
The Aileron assemblies are comprised of monolithic and sandwich composite parts manufactured in-house by Kaman, brought together into the final assembly with bought-out components from the Kaman supply chain. The Winglet assemblies are comprised of complex double curvature sandwich composite parts manufactured in-house by Kaman and assembled with bought-out components and hardware. The components are then shipped to Triumph to be incorporated into the complete Gulfstream G280 Wing build.
