Arcfield Canada Corp. has been awarded a subcontract valued at $7.7 million by L3Harris Technologies to provide supply chain management services to the CF-18 fleet based at Canadian Forces Base Cold Lake and Bagotville. The subcontract represents new work for Arcfield and has a period of performance of four years plus six potential option years.

Since the 1980s, Arcfield Canada has provided in-service support and engineering services for the Royal Canadian Air Force’s CF-18 fighter aircraft. In 2017, the company won a subcontract to provide similar responsibilities for the F404 propulsion system. With this award, Arcfield Canada now provides direct support to all supply chain services for Canada’s CF-18 fighter fleet.

“Arcfield Canada has a strong legacy in servicing CF-18s for the Department of National Defence and the RCAF. We appreciate the opportunity to provide our unique expertise and capabilities with L3Harris to support Canada’s fighter fleet,” said Jacques Comtois, Director of Arcfield Canada.

With the new 18,000 sq ft expansion of its warehouse facilities in Saguenay, Quebec and an 1,800 sq ft renovation in Calgary, Alberta, Arcfield will hire several new full-time professionals to support expanding operations at Cold Lake, Calgary and Bagotville. In addition, Arcfield’s partnership with L3Harris on the performance-based contract will support the economic benefits, flexibility, and value of Canada’s Sustainment Initiative.

“This award is a testament to Arcfield Canada’s proven record as a leading provider of reliable supply chain management solutions. We are honoured to continue our long-standing partnership with the RCAF and look forward to expanding these services to Canada’s next generation of fighter and transport aircraft in the future,” concluded Kevin Kelly, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Arcfield.
