Quickstep wins new JSF work worth up to $4 million annually

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.”


According to the company, it expects to increase revenues through the new work by $3 million to $4 million annually, assuming full rate production.


Prime minister Scott Morrison recently opened Quickstep’s expanded facility at Bankstown.
