NTS awarded engineering, testing, technical services contract

  • 16-Aug-2010 05:07 EDT

National Technical Systems Inc. (NTS) announced that it has been awarded a long-term contract by Wichita, KS-based Hawker Beechcraft Corp (HBC), a global manufacturer of business, special mission, and trainer aircraft, to provide HBC a comprehensive range of engineering, testing, and technical services. NTS will be a strategic supplier to HBC and provide them an integrated menu of services that includes product design, review, testing, and certification. HBC has been an NTS customer for several years and this new contract significantly expands the relationship between the two companies and establishes NTS as a preferred vendor, noted NTS CEO William McGinnis. NTS will now be providing what it calls Life Cycle Product Services, which includes engineering and testing services, to support the development, certification, and in-service requirements of HBC's line of aircraft. McGinnis also said that NTS believes its expanded relationship with HBC is a strategic breakthrough in the important Wichita aerospace market and that he anticipates this agreement will help establish the foundation for similar agreements with other key players in the region and their supporting supply chains.
