Australian defence contractor Milspec Services has signed a teaming agreement with US based Associated Aircraft Manufacturing (AAMSI) ‘to better serve the needs’ of the Australia Defence Market.

Milspec – a supplier of logistical services and spares support to the Australian Defence sector – and AAMS – a Boeing licensed structural parts manufacturer for the F-18 and CH-47 platforms – have been working with the Australian Defence Force for more than a combined 50 years.

Steve Byrne, Director of Milspec Services, said the Teaming agreement will see the two parties improve the support provided to both current and future customers without adding any extra costs to the Commonwealth of Australia.

“This partnership shows the commitment of AAMSI and Milspec Services to provide long term support of the F-18 and CH47 in our region by bringing together the leading Boeing approved component manufacturer and Australia’s leading defence supplier in a deal that brings no extra costs to the Commonwealth but ensures ongoing support to these platforms ,” Mr Byrne said.

Dennis Zalupski, President & CEO of AAMSI said the partnership will strengthen the product and service offerings that the two companies bring to the Australian Defence sector.

“Milspec Services & AAMSI are both looking forward to supporting all platforms of the Australia Defence Force directly and through the Defence Contracted customers,” Mr Zalupski concluded.
