Oct. 24, 2023

TIGHITCO's Overhaul Support Services (OSS) division has been awarded a new contract by the U.S. Army for the UH-60 Vane Axial Fan. The 5-year long-term agreement, pursuant to Solicitation W58RGZ-23-B-0033, is valued at up to $5.9 Million and adds to the recent contract awards by the company's DOD partners.

“This is a significant contract for TIGHITCO OSS,” stated Shawn Hawks, TIGHITCO VP/GM Aerostructures.  “It will serve as a continuum of our work in supporting the U.S. Army. The UH-60 Vane Axial Fan is a key complex component of the Army's helicopter fleet, and this contract will ensure that OSS can continue to provide the high quality of service that the Army requires.”

TIGHITCO has been supporting the U.S. Army’s helicopter fleet for over 30 years. The company’s OSS division specializes in the repair and overhaul of critical rotorcraft and fixed-wing components. The new contract calls for the overhaul of up to 20 UH-60 Vane Axial Fans per year. Work will be performed at TIGHITCO’s East Granby, CT facility and is expected to begin in Q2 of 2024.

“The company is proud to be a part of the Army's trusted suppliers, and we look forward to continuing our work in support of the Army's mission,’ Hawks concluded.
