Rolls-Royce lands £62m US Air Force contract
Monday 11 February 2013
Rolls-Royce has been awarded a $97.3 million (£61.9 million) contract by the US Air Force.
The contract sees the engineering group provide logistics and programme management support for the Air Force’s C-130J fleet and engineering services, spare parts and data support.
Paul Craig, president of Rolls-Royce’s defence customer services, said: “We are proud that the US Air Force has again chosen Rolls-Royce to deliver our innovative and cost-effective MissionCare support. Rolls-Royce has worked hard to develop service support that aligns our efforts with customer requirements for mission readiness.”
The group came under fire last week for announcing hundreds of job losses. Unite said 320 posts were being axed, mainly at the firm’s Derby and Bristol sites, and described the cuts as “unnecessary”.
Rolls-Royce has said the number it employs in the UK will remain constant or grow in the coming year.
