Leonardo and Morson Projects sign partnership agreement

Leonardo and Morson Projects have signed a long-term Strategic Partnering Agreement (SPA), which will enable the UK’s only onshore helicopter manufacturer to offload engineering work to augment the company’s existing highly skilled engineering capacity.

Further to the contract signing on 3rd March, Morson Projects will be managing engineering work at Leonardo’s UK helicopter facility in the South West of England through subcontractors or through the management of fixed-price packages at one of Morson Project’s UK design offices in Northern Ireland and the North of England, covering Belfast, Manchester, and Hull.

Adam Clarke, managing director of Leonardo Helicopters UK, commented: “This Strategic Partnering Agreement enables Leonardo and Morson Projects to not only strengthen relations between the two companies, but it also secures engineering work and supply chain resilience across the UK. Furthermore, if we are successful on large contracts like the UK MOD New Medium Helicopter programme, we will have a number of skills available to us to support UK prosperity and our engineering ecosystem.”

Gareth Beck, operations director at Morson Projects, added: “The Prime Supplier Status award is the culmination of many successful years of Leonardo and Morson Projects working collaboratively and is testament to the hard work, passion, and commitment of everyone involved. Morson Projects is delighted that we can continue to work with Leonardo’s industry leading products and be at the forefront of capability enhancement.”
