The company will provide 32,000 panel fastener inserts at $11.49ea to the Air Force for use in the F-15 fighter jet. The order, contract # SPM5AY-10-D-0102 was placed on December 2 and is to be delivered by June 20, 2011. It was placed against a long term contract set to expire on August 23, 2012, with an option to extend from one to three years.
At the time of the original solicitation, number SPM5AY10R0014, a complete data package for the associated items did not exist. A market survey was conducted by the Government to several fastener dealers and manufacturers to source these items. Solicitations were also sent directly to Herndon Products, Wesco Aircraft and Fatigue Technology. It was determined that Fatigue Technology was the only source of supply known to have the capability to provide the required items based on the survey and was awarded a long term contract on August 24, 2010.
