TULSA, Okla. (Thurs., Aug. 11 2016) – NORDAM Transparency Group COO T. Hastings Siegfried today announced a new $10 million, 15-year contract as the exclusive supplier of front and lower cockpit windows for the recently unveiled Airbus Helicopters H160.
Under the agreement, NORDAM’s U.S. Transparency facility, 7018 N. Lakewood Ave., will manufacture 50 shipsets to contain four rotorcraft transparencies: two lateral and two nose windows, the latter of which boasts one of the largest continuous viewing areas in the helicopter industry.
“To say we’re proud about the inaugural award of production business assigned to NORDAM by Airbus Helicopters would be an understatement,” Siegfried said. “Being the exclusive supplier for key transparencies on this cutting-edge new rotorcraft speaks to the confidence Airbus has in us to consistently meet quality and delivery demands.”
The Airbus Helicopters H160 is designed as a medium duty helicopter, filling the range between the manufacturer’s existing, 4-ton-class, twin-engine H145 and the recent super-medium H175. The H160 is currently in a testing and certification phase, with first deliveries to customers expected in 2018.
Headquartered in Tulsa and employing 2,500 people across multiple, strategically-located operations and customer support facilities around the world, NORDAM is one of the largest independently owned aerospace companies. The firm designs, certifies and manufactures integrated propulsion systems, nacelles and thrust reversers for business jets; builds composite aircraft structures, interior shells, custom cabinetry and radomes; and manufactures aircraft transparencies, such as cabin windows, wing-tip lens assemblies and flight deck windows. NORDAM also is a major third-party provider of maintenance, repair and overhaul services to the military, commercial airline and air freight markets. Learn more about NORDAM at NORDAM.com.
