Ducommun receives multiple contracts from AgustaWestland to support AW139 helicopter

Ducommun Incorporated has received a series of contracts from AgustaWestland Philadelphia Corporation to produce specialized, complex wiring harnesses for the new AW139 multi-mission helicopter. Ducommun LaBarge Technologies will produce the wiring harnesses through December 2014 at the Company's Joplin, Mo., facility.

"We are excited that AgustaWestland has selected Ducommun for this new opportunity," said Anthony J. Reardon, chairman, president and chief executive officer. "We have a long history of supporting AgustaWestland through our Ducommun AeroStructures group and are pleased to be able to support them on this important program through our Ducommun LaBarge Technologies group. We have the technology, manufacturing expertise, and high-level support required by AgustaWestland, and look forward to growing our relationship on the AW139 helicopter and beyond."

The AW139 sets new standards for multi-mission performance via its unrivaled range; the highest power-to-weight ratio in its class; and its performance under extreme conditions – along with cruising speeds of up to 165 knots. It features a low acoustic signature, integrated mission avionics and is available with a full ice protection system, allowing aircrews to accomplish missions in the most demanding environments. More than 180 customers in 60 countries use the medium-twin engine AW139 for multi-mission roles. As the most modern and versatile helicopter designed and produced in the last decade, nearly 670 AW139s have been sold worldwide.
