Sydney-based manufacturer Quickstep Holding has extended its partnership with US defense and aerospace company Lockheed Martin by becoming a supplier to its new LM-100J commercial freighter.

The company, which is the largest independent aerospace-grade advanced composite manufacturer in Australia, also supplies wing flaps to Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program.

The LM-100J freighter, which recently made its global debut at the 2017 Paris Air Show, is based on the C-130J Super Hercules military tactical airlifter.

“The Quickstep team is extremely proud to be the supplier of the wing flaps for the LM-100J in addition to the C130J military version of this aircraft,” said Mark Burgess, Quickstep’s recently appointed CEO and managing director.

“The introduction of the LM-100J signifies a new chapter in Hercules operations and we are proud to be a part of this new platform that will truly change the commercial freighter marketplace.”

Burgess joined Quickstep on May 8 after four years as vice president at Honeywell Aerospace Asia Pacific and a career with BAE Systems.

“I am genuinely excited about Quickstep’s future,” he said. “ We are generating positive cash flow from our aerospace operations.”
