Save this for later

Triumph Group has received two contract extensions from General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems for the production of specially machined guided missile parts, the company announced on 10 September.

Under the contracts, Triumph will perform the machining and forging work needed to produce the main and precursor charge liners used on the Lockheed Martin’s Hellfire Romeo guided missile systems.

The company originally received the contract from General Dynamic Ordnance and Tactical Systems in 1994 and served as the sole supplier for the parts until 2017 when a second source provider was mandated. Since then Triumph has maintained more than 80% of the contract for the main liner and 100% on the precursor liner.
