A long-term price agreement between Terma and BAE Systems has been concluded for the manufacture of composite skins for all three variants of the F-35. The announcement was made at the ongoing airshow.
The actual agreement includes the latest F-35 LRIP 12-14 program of record and is a continuation of a long-term agreement signed in 2013 covering the manufacture of Large Composite Skins for the Horizontal and Vertical Tail on all variants of the F-35.
“This new signing further confirms Terma’s strong position on the F-35 program and shows how collaboration can benefit Terma, BAE Systems, and the F-35 program as a whole. Through a major investment program over the past three years, Terma today offers one of Europe’s most advanced and high-tech production facilities for the development and manufacture of composite parts for the aircraft industry,” said Jens Maaløe, President & CEO, Terma.
Terma has been collaborating with BAE Systems on the F-35 program since 2006 but has been involved in the F-35 program since 2002 when Denmark joined the F-35 program as a partner country. The Danish Government announced its intention to acquire 27 F-35As in 2016.
