Héroux-Devtek Awarded Contract from Lockheed Martin

Quebec-based Héroux-Devtek, a leading international manufacturer of aerospace products and the world’s third-largest landing gear manufacturer, has been awarded a contract from Lockheed Martin for the development of landing gears for its next generation of defense aircraft.

“We are proud to see our expertise recognized by a major player like Lockheed Martin. Winning this very promising contract will help strengthen our business relationship with this important client and bring about new opportunities,” said Martin Brassard, President and Chief Executive Officer of Héroux-Devtek.

The new contract will focus on the development of a completely new generation of landing gears, which positively reflects on the high level of expertise of Héroux-Devtek’s engineering teams as well as on the excellence of the manufacturing teams who have met the high standards of a leader in innovation and R&D such as Lockheed Martin.

A relationship of trust that strengthens over time

The relationship between Héroux-Devtek and Lockheed Martin began in the 1990s when Héroux-Devtek provided maintenance for the landing gears for the P-3 maritime patrol aircraft, the manufacture of landing gears for the C-130 cargo aircraft, as well as for the design and manufacture of landing gears for the CH-53K helicopter and flight opening door uplock system for the F-35 multi-role aircraft.
