MH-60K SpecOps Blackhawk(click to view full) Manchester, CT’s Purdy Corp. won a $17.4 million firm-fixed-price contract to make rotor hubs for Black Hawks. The manufacturing should extend through to October 2007. The Army Aviation and Missile Command at Redstone Arsenal, AL contracted the deal (W58RGZ-05-C-0356). A little more than two years ago, Purdy won a $16.3 million Navy contract to make Black Hawk spindle assemblies. Also in 2003 it won a $5.3 million contract from the Army for a vaguely-worded deal for “support and gear.”
