Minister for Defence Materiel Jason Clare today announced that Victorian-based company Lovitt Technologies had won a contract with Boeing valued at nearly $1 million for wing parts for the worldwide F/A-18 Super Hornet fleet.

 

“This is an outstanding achievement for Lovitt technologies and is the result of their hard work and demonstrates their high level of manufacturing capability,” Mr Clare said.

 

Lovitt Technologies employs around 80 staff and specialises in machining, assembly and testing of aero structures. Lovitt Technologies also recently won another contract with Boeing to supply machined parts to Boeing for the V-22 Osprey.

 

Lovitt is one of several Australian companies that have in recent months been successful under the Global Supply Chain (GSC) program in penetrating the overseas export market. It has been engaged in the Australian Government’s Global Supply Chain Program since the program’s launch in 2009.

 

Six global defence prime contractors - Boeing, Raytheon, Thales, Northrop Grumman and more recently BAE Systems and Lockheed Martin – are now actively engaged in the Global Supply Chain program implemented through the Defence Materiel Organisation.

 

The contract awarded to Lovitt also reinforces Boeing’s ongoing commitment to Australian industry through the Global Supply Chain Program,” Mr Clare said.

 

“The Global Supply Chain Program continues to provide an avenue for capable Australian companies seeking to win export work with international defence primes.

 

“The value of export contracts won to date that have been facilitated through the Global Supply Chain Program is now more than $446 million,” Mr Clare said.
