Pennsylvania aerospace manufacturer Triumph Group Inc.'s West Hartford facility will manufacture parts for U.S. Army helicopters to fill a $17.3 million order for the Defense Logistics Agency.

The $17.3 million order is the third one the DLA -- a combat agency of the U.S. Department of Defense -- placed with Triumph for enhanced digital electronic control units (EDECUs) for use in the U.S. Army's UH-60 Black Hawk and AH-64 Apache fleets, according to Triumph.

"As aftermarket support continues to be increasingly important to our military and defense customers, Triumph is pleased to continue upgrading the EDECUs on the critical Black Hawk and Apache fleets," said Bill Kircher, executive vice president of Triumph Systems & Support.

Triumph's West Hartford engine and control facility at 1 Charter Oak. Blvd., will manufacture the units, in addition to a previous order. In Jan. 2019, the company won a $77 million federal defense contract to produce digital electronic control units to be produced in West Hartford.

Triumph first received the logistics contract in 2013 as part of its participation in the Army’s Universal Control Technology Program. Since then, Triumph has provided 6,000-plus control units for the Apache, Black Hawk, Jayhawk and Seahawk aircraft fleet used by the Army, U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard.

Founded in 1993, the company says it designs, engineers, manufactures, repairs and overhauls aerospace and defense systems, components and structures to service the global aviation market.

Triumph also has a mechanical solutions site in Windsor.
