CPI wins Black Hawk fuel assemblies contract

20th July 2017 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


CPI Aerostructures has secured a five-year contract worth $21 million to manufacture and supply fuel panel assemblies for Sikorsky's UH-60M Black Hawk helicopter, the company announced on 17 July.

The contract will run from 2018 to 2022, extending CPIs production run of fuel panel assemblies since 2010.

Under the new agreement CPI will be responsible for all manufacturing work for the assemblies, including purchasing and managing the supply chain for all detail parts and system components such as fuel valves, flexible hosing and tubing.

Douglas J McCrosson, president and CEO of CPI Aerostructures, said: ‘The fuel panel assembly is a key product within our aerosystems segment and is an excellent example of our capabilities outside of our traditional aerostructures market.

'The Black Hawk helicopter has been one of the most important aircraft systems to CPI Aerostructures for the past ten years and it is gratifying that it will continue to be so for at least the next five years.’
