Cameroon presidency ratifies Marshall ADG’s five-year air force support contract
The Cameroon presidency has ratified a five-year contract with Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group.
The Cambridge company will provide aircraft maintenance, technical support and training for the Cameroon Air Force’s fleet of C-130H aircraft.
The support contract was signed last year by Marshall ADG sales director Matthew Harvey and Brigadier General Jean-Calvin Momha, chief of air staff at the Cameroon Air Force, at its headquarters in the Cameroon capital Yaoundé.
The brigadier general said: “The Cameroon Air Force demands the very highest standards of support across all its fleets and the C-130 provides critical capability to our important airlift missions.
“Marshall ADG has an excellent reputation within the industry for providing world-class support on the C-130 and our evaluation process confirmed that their solution delivered the best value for money. We look forward to developing a solid long term relationship with Marshall and seeing the benefits that their experience will bring to our C -130 operations.”
All depth maintenance on the fleet will be carried out in Cambridge.
Alistair McPhee, CEO of Marshall ADG, said: “We are delighted that the Cameroon Air Force selected our tender as the most competitive solution to deliver support to the operations of their C-130 fleet.
“We are proud to support the largest customer base of C-130 operators in the world and this latest contract is very much testimony to the extensive knowledge and expertise of our skilled workforce on large military aircraft.
“We thank the Cameroon Air Force for the trust they have shown in Marshall ADG and look forward to building on this success within the African continent.”
Marshall ADG will also work closely with the Cameroon Air Force’s logistics partner Aeromec.
