Kaman gets 5-year contract extension for G280 Gulfstream Program

Kaman Aerosystems said its UK operation has been successful in securing a five-year contract extension on the Gulfstream G280 program for the supply of Ailerons and Winglets to Triumph Aerostructures.

This takes the period of program deliveries out to 2019 and firmly consolidates Kaman as a key supplier on the G280 program. The contract extension has an expected value of more than USD27M over the next five years.

The Aileron assemblies are comprised of monolithic and sandwich composite parts manufactured in-house by Kaman, brought together into the final assembly with bought-out components from the Kaman supply chain. The Winglet assemblies are comprised of complex double curvature sandwich composite parts manufactured in-house by Kaman and assembled with bought-out components and hardware. The components are then shipped to Triumph to be incorporated into the complete Gulfstream G280 Wing build.

Kaman Aerosystems is a division of the aerospace segment of Kaman Corporation (NYSE:KAMN), which was founded in 1945. Headquartered in Bloomfield, Connecticut, Kaman conducts business in the aerospace and distribution markets.
