The order, which will be handled by Quickstep’s Bankstown facility, is slated for delivery in fiscal years 2024 to 2025.

“It is a great testament to the quality and delivery performance of our Aerostructures business, especially in a challenging operating environment, that we have secured this follow-on work. We are proud to support this important international program and continue to explore opportunities for additional volume,” Burgess added.
