Fokker Technologies signs additional F-35 contracts with NGC

Fokker Aerostructures, part of Fokker Technologies, signed an agreement today with Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) for the delivery of the in-flight opening doors for Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Lightning II. The agreement was signed at the Farnborough International Airshow. Under this agreement, Fokker will be responsible for the manufacturing of the in-flight opening doors for the next batch of aircraft in low rate initial production lots 8 and 9.

This agreement continues the very successful current arrangement through the previous low rate initial production lots, with potential opportunities to continue for the full rate production phases. This agreement reaffirms Fokker’s position as a strategic supplier in the F-35 program and helps secure skilled specialist work at Fokker in Hoogeveen and Papendrecht (Netherlands) over the coming years.


The agreement was signed by Brian Chappel, Vice President F-35 Northrop Grumman, and Hans Büthker, CEO, Fokker Technologies.

”These agreements emphasize the success of the F-35 JSF industrial participation in the Netherlands”, says Hans Büthker, CEO of Fokker Technologies. “We are very proud to extend our mutual long-term relationships to the next F-35 production batches. The enthusiasm of hundreds of highly trained specialists that are part of the F-35 Lightning II team is enormous. The agreements demonstrate the willingness, trust and commitment of our partners to use our unique capabilities and services.”
