Ducommun receives follow-on contract from Sikorsky for BLACK HAWK helicopter program

Ducommun Incorporated today announced that it has received a multi-year contract from Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., a unit of United Technologies Corp., to continue to produce electromechanical assemblies for various models of the UH-60 BLACK HAWK helicopter. Ducommun LaBarge Technologies will produce the electromechanical assemblies at its Huntsville, Ark., facility through 2017.

"We're very pleased to support Sikorsky in meeting its ongoing commitments to the U.S. Army and Navy and, in so doing, extend our role as a leading provider of the helicopter's electronics,” said Anthony J. Reardon, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “The BLACK HAWK is an enduring, battle-proven workhorse which must perform flawlessly in the field, utilizing our sophisticated components and assemblies. The BLACK HAWK, which we've supported for over two decades, remains our single biggest defense platform in terms of annual revenue, and we look forward to supporting it for many more years to come.”

Ducommun LaBarge Technologies has manufactured electronic assemblies and wiring harnesses for the BLACK HAWK program since 2005, and Ducommun AeroStructures has supported the aircraft since its inception. The BLACK HAWK is the U.S. Army's primary utility tactical transport helicopter, valued for its ability to be quickly deployed and reconfigured for various missions to carry troops, weapons systems and supplies.
