Swedes extend 44-year defence alliance with Marshall ADG
Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group in Cambridge UK has won a contract to support the Swedish Air Force fleet of Lockheed Martin C-130 aircraft by providing depth maintenance services.
Försvarets materielverk, the Swedish Armed Forces Defence Materiel Administration, awarded the contract to the Cambridge UK defence sector stalwart.
The renewal of this long-term contract will ensure that Marshall continues to provide support to its longest-standing international C-130 customer until the end of 2021, with an option to extend the deal.
Since 1974 Marshall has supported the Swedish Armed Forces’ C-130 fleet with an unbroken maintenance programme covering all levels of maintenance, engineering support, technical modifications, surge requirement support at base and supply chain services.
Alistair McPhee, CEO of Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, said: “We are proud to have won this contract to support the Swedish Air Force Fleet of C-130 aircraft.
“To have supported the Swedish Air Force for over four decades is incredible and I look forward to what we can achieve in the future.”
