Saab has placed an order with Czech aerospace company AERO
Vodochody for the production of NATO pylons for the Gripen aircraft
system. Transfer of production will commence at the Aero facilities
at Vodochody in the Czech Republic in autumn this year.
Aero tells ANN Saab also recently signed a joint working
agreement with Aero establishing a mutual cooperation concerning
marketing and sales of the L-159 Combat and Training System. The
agreement was also to identify manufacturing work packages (MWP)
between Saab and Aero.
"We highly value the continuation of cooperation with Saab,
recently confirmed within our military program by support of the
L-159 Program and today joining the Gripen project," said Igor
Hulak, President of Aero. "Our aim is to gradually strengthen our
position on the aerostructures market, reaching interesting orders,
both in military and civil aviation technology. We are extremely
pleased to receive this order from Saab, extending our portfolio of
customers within our aerostructures program."
"Aero Vodochody is an important partner for our Gripen offset
program in the Czech Republic. This order for production of NATO
pylons demonstrates the close collaboration we have with Aero
Vodochody. We are very pleased with our cooperation," added Gripen
Program Director for the Czech Republic, Bengt Littke.
