Triumph Group announced that its Triumph Systems & Support business was awarded a four-year contract for hydraulic utility actuation (HUA) valves on the F-35 Lightning II fighter aircraft.
The long-term agreement extends an existing two-year order with Lockheed Martin and makes Triumph Group the sole provider for the HUA valve statement of work.
“We are pleased that Lockheed Martin values the quality and performance of our HUA valves, and is selecting Triumph as the sole source provider for the next four years on the F-35 program,” said William Kircher, Executive Vice President, Triumph Systems & Support. “We pride ourselves on providing leading product solutions based on our deep understanding of our customers’ requirements, and we look forward to building upon our relationship by supporting this key military aircraft program with the highest performing and most reliable products and service.”
The HUA valves Triumph manufactures for the F-35 program provide directional flow control for hydraulic systems that provide critical aircraft functions. Designed for simplicity and compatibility, the Triumph valves are used in multiple locations and integrate with other aircraft systems. The proprietary designs provided by Triumph for the F-35 deliver industry-leading reliability, affordability, quality and delivery performance.
