Marshall ADG wins C-130 maintenance contract with Norwegian and Danish armed forces

Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group (MADG) has secured another major contract to support a C-130 aircraft fleet.

A seven-year deal has been signed with the Norwegian Defence Logistic Organisation and the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics.

Under it, the Cambridge company will maintain the nations’ combined fleet of eight C-130J aircraft.

MADG now supports C-130 fleets for 17 international governments and won the latest contract after a competitive tender.

Marshall has a relationship with the Royal Danish Air Force dating back to 1986 and has worked with the Royal Norwegian Air Force since the mid-seventies, having previously supported its C-130H fleet.

Sales director Matthew Harvey said: “We are absolutely delighted that we have been able to secure a further seven-year deal with two very important and long-standing customers. It is a fantastic testament to the quality of the work that our teams deliver and also serves to reinforce our position on the global stage.

“It is the perfect way to end the year during which we have continued to grow our global footprint, most notably securing a 10-year multi-million dollar contract to provide depot level maintenance to the US Marine Corp’s fleet of 66 KC-130J tanker aircraft.

“We are incredibly proud that we have been able to continue to grow our business and at the same time support so many nations in their fight against the current global pandemic by ensuring aircraft availability through the most challenging of periods.”

The Royal Danish Airforce fleet of four C-130J-30 aircraft supports Danish troops around the world as well as the Danish outposts in the Arctic region, up to Station Nord, less than 1,000 kilometres from the North Pole.
