Fokker Technologies expands Dutch industrial participation in F-35 aircraft program through new agreements with Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman

Fokker Technologies (group name of five Fokker Business Units) has signed a competitive strategic sourcing agreement with Lockheed Martin Aeronautics to identify and develop future roles and opportunities for Fokker in the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program. Both companies agreed to work together to enable the best propositions from the specialized Fokker Business Units, and to support the F-35 over the lifetime of the program. Sustainment and follow-on opportunities for Fokker are emerging and will become available in the future.

Fokker Elmo, a Business Unit of Fokker Technologies, and Lockheed Martin have signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) contracting Fokker Elmo as the designated strategic supplier of wiring harnesses for the F-35 Lightning II aircraft. This agreement continues the very successful current arrangement through low rate initial production lots 5 through 9, with the intention to continue for the full rate production phases. Under the terms of the agreement, Fokker Elmo will provide its unique total integrated wiring system solution during the aircraft's production phases. This agreement is a formalization of the agreements of April 2008.

Fokker Aerostructures (another Business Unit of Fokker Technologies), Lockheed Martin Aeronautics and Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding selecting Fokker Aerostructures as the supplier for the development and manufacturing of the in-flight opening doors, the flaperons, the outboard leading edges, the STOVL weapon bay doors and the arresting rears for the F-35 Lightning II. This agreement consolidates the cooperation of Fokker, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman in the F-35 program for the upcoming production phases.

"These agreements are a major step forward and emphasize the success of the F-35 JSF industrial participation in the Netherlands", says Sjoerd Vollebregt, CEO of Fokker Technologies. "We are very proud to extend our mutual long-term relationships to the next level. The enthusiasm of hundreds of highly educated specialists that are part of the F-35 Lightning II team is enormous. The Agreements demonstrates willingness trust and commitment of our partners to use our unique capabilities and services. "
