Air Industries Group subsidiary Sterling Engineering Corp receives contracts for $3.0 Million for turbine engine and helicopter components
Monday, 27 February 2023

Air Industries Group (the Company), an integrated Tier 1 manufacturer of precision assemblies and components for mission-critical aerospace and defense applications, and a prime contractor to the U.S. Department of Defense, today announced that it has been awarded new contracts worth $3.0 million for turbine engine components.

Mr. Lou Melluzzo, CEO of Air Industries, commented: “Our Sterling Engineering subsidiary has received a new contract from a long-established customer. The component is a Support Nozzle used in high pressure turbine engines for onboard electric power generation on large ships.

“Our Connecticut operation is starting to see a resurgence of activity for both turbine engine work and rotorcraft components.

“Earlier this month our Sterling subsidiary also received an important order for a flight critical component for the CH-53K. This marks the second order received on this major new helicopter platform and it follows a previously announced $5.2 million Long-Term Agreement for Chaff Pods for the CH-53K in late 2021. The CH-53K is a sea-based, long range, heavy-lift helicopter providing three times the lift capability of its predecessor.

“In recent months we have seen an increase in bookings of new business for both our Long Island and Connecticut subsidiaries. For the last three months ending January 31, 2023 our consolidated monthly bookings represented a 168% increase over the monthly average for the previous nine months. This is an encouraging trend.”
