Boeing has tapped Wencor Group's Kitco Defense subsidiary to provide sub-assemblies, supply kits and related parts to support the development of wing sets for the U.S. Air Force’s A-10 Thunderbolt II aircraft fleet under a subcontract valued at over $15M. Kitco Defense said Friday that it has delivered 173 sub-assemblies and wing sets prior to the award of the subcontract.
Boeing landed a potential 11-year, $999M indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to oversee the production of 112 wing sets and spare kits for the A-10 aircraft. The company will provide 27 wing sets to Hill Air Force Base in Utah as part of the IDIQ's initial order.
Doug Newcomb, general manager at Kitco Defense, said that the company is “excited to continue our relationship with Boeing on the sustainment work for the A-10 aircraft.“ Wencor Group is an Atlanta, Ga.-based company that offers a variety of services to military clients and original equipment manufacturers.
