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.
