For over 65 years, we at CEF have been providing electro-mechanical components for the most prestigious aerospace companies in the world. These capabilities include actuated landing lights, compressors, primary and secondary flight control actuation, and much more.
With this history in mind, and the future we are always looking toward, we are thrilled to announce that we have been chosen by Embraer to design, develop, test, and supply electro-mechanical air inlet door actuators for their KC-390 next-generation military transport aircraft.
We will be providing all design, production, and spare units as part of this contract, as well as full aftermarket support for the fleet during the lifetime of the KC-390s. As exciting as the contract itself is, equally exciting is that these actuators will be the first of their kind installed on Embraer aircraft.
According to Jason Marlin, CEF’s Director of Sales & Marketing, this partnership “underscores the importance of our new relationship with Embraer… We believe the KC-390 program represents an outstanding market opportunity and the future of military & commercial cargo/transport aircraft. Our selection confirms our position as the preeminent supplier for these specific electro-mechanical actuators based on our long history and prior experience with similar actuators on the C-130, C-5, C-17, CRJ 700/900/1000, Global Express and Saab 340/2000 programs.”
We take great pride in our industry-leading products and our partnerships with other industry leaders. We look forward to continued success and a mutually-beneficial relationship with the Embraer.
