Arcfield Canada Awarded $7.7M Subcontract by L3Harris


Arcfield Canada Corp., a leading provider in aerospace and defence services and recognized by Canadian Defence Review (CDR) as a top 100 Defence Contractor in Canada, has been awarded a subcontract by L3Harris Technologies, valued at $7.7M, to provide supply chain management services to the CF-18 fleet, based at Canadian Forces Base Cold Lake and Bagotville. This subcontract represents new work for the company and has a period of performance of four years plus six potential option years.

For more than three decades, Arcfield Canada has provided comprehensive in-service support, engineering services, and supply chain management for the Royal Canadian Air Force’s (RCAF) CF-18 fighter aircraft avionics, and was awarded a subcontract in 2017 for similar responsibilities for the F404 propulsion system. With this award, Arcfield Canada now provides direct support to all supply chain services for Canada’s CF-18 fighter fleet.

“Arcfield Canada has a strong legacy in servicing CF-18s for the Department of National Defence and the RCAF”, said Jacques Comtois, director, Arcfield Canada. “We appreciate the opportunity to provide our unique expertise and capabilities with L3Harris to support Canada’s fighter fleet.”

This new subcontract will require an 18,000-square foot expansion of Arcfield Canada’s warehouse facility located in the Saguenay, Quebec and a further 1,800-square foot renovation of its Calgary, Alberta facility. To support the program, Arcfield will hire several new full-time professionals to support expanding operations at Cold Lake, Calgary and Bagotville. Additionally, Arcfield Canada’s partnership with L3Harris on the performance-based contract will support the economic benefits, flexibility, and value of Canada’s Sustainment Initiative.

“This award is a testament to Arcfield Canada’s proven record as a leading provider of reliable supply chain management solutions,” said Kevin Kelly, chairman and chief executive officer, Arcfield. “We are honoured to continue our long-standing partnership with the RCAF and look forward to expanding these services to Canada’s next generation of fighter and transport aircraft in the future.”
