Composites technology company Quickstep will provide 10 new parts to the Joint Strike Fighter program, it was announced on Wednesday morning.
Quickstep currently produces 35 components for the F-35. The new work is for the plane’s centre fuselage.
“This assignment is a testament to Quickstep’s invaluable work in the Australian defence industry and its export success,” said defence industry minister Melissa Price in a statement.
“There is currently US$250,000 worth of Australian Quickstep equipment on every F-35 JSF globally.”
Prime minister Scott Morrison recently opened Quickstep’s expanded facility at Bankstown.
