F-35BLockheed Martin has subcontracted a Materion Corp. subsidiary to deliver aluminum-beryllium casting products that Lockheed intends to use to assemble the electro-optical targeting system of F-35 fighter jets.

Materion Brush Beryllium & Composites will supply its AlBeMet metal composites to Lockheed through the agreement, of which value was not disclosed, Materion said Tuesday.

“We have made a significant investment in advancing our casting technology, and this contract adds to our growing number of sales orders in the defense and semiconductor markets,” said Lawrence Ryczek, vice president and general manager of Materion Brush Beryllium & Composites.

Materion and the Defense Department have been collaborating to increase beryllium materials production at the company’s factory in Elmore, Ohio.

The facility manufactures the composite for equipment used by defense and civilian organizations, according to Materion.
