Kitco Defense provides structural aircraft assemblies for multiple tier 1 OEMs and the US Government. Kitco also provides a variety of services that the OEMs can no longer afford or desire to support, including supply chain and program management.


Overhauls and repairs require multiple parts, and many parts need to be replaced every time. A kit will provide you with the parts you need in convenient packaging right when you need it. Your company will save time and expense with lower administrative costs and less inventory on your shelves. Since all of the parts are in the kit, you no longer have to worry about whether each item was ordered or when the last part will arrive.

…Guaranteed Savings


Each organization continually improves the effectiveness of the QMS through the use of the quality policy, quality objectives, audit results, analysis of data, corrective and preventive actions and management review. The organizations also monitor the implementation of improvement activities and evaluate the effectiveness of the results.


OEMs, like Lockheed, Northrop Grumman and Sikorsky come to Kitco Defense to improve their bottom line by licensing parts or assemblies in their legacy product portfolio. These firms have discovered that Kitco Defense is a great partner. For example, our relationship with Northrop Grumman licensing programs began in the early 90s. These programs are very successful and continue to be supported today. The OEMs benefit by Kitco Defense taking responsibility for supporting OEM requirements on Legacy aircraft licensed products. The OEMS also benefit by revenue going straight to the “bottom line”.
