“We are excited that AgustaWestland has selected Ducommun for this new opportunity,” said Anthony J. Reardon, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “We have a long history of supporting AgustaWestland through our Ducommun AeroStructures group and are pleased to be able to support them on this important program through our Ducommun LaBarge Technologies group. We have the technology, manufacturing expertise, and high-level support required by AgustaWestland, and look forward to growing our relationship on the AW139 helicopter and beyond.”

Currently, more than 180 customers in 60 countries use the medium-twin engine AW139 for multi-mission roles and nearly 670 AW139s have been sold worldwide.
