Northstar Network Ltd. announced today it has signed a Letter of Intent with DEW Engineering and Development ULC (DEW) to collaborate on a number of Canadian defence projects covering up to $16 million in opportunities for Northstar.
According to a news release, DEW and Northstar will bolster DEW's Canadian supply chain, and provide valuable and long-term contract manufacturing opportunities for Northstar now and in the future in the defence field.
Northstar, based in St. John's, is a prominent Atlantic Canadian supplier for contract manufacturing, assembly and integration services. Northstar manufactures a number of defence products on contract, including consoles for the Halifax-Class Frigates and Victoria-Class Submarines, aircraft parts and assemblies for the P-3 Orion/CP-140 Aurora Maritime patrol aircraft, and a number of sonar systems for threat detection and classification. Northstar also backs its products with a suite of support services including design optimisation, engineering, trainer development and in-service support.
DEW, of Ottawa and Miramichi, New Brunswick, is well positioned for selection as both a prime contractor and top-tier supplier for a number of Canadian military land-vehicle and related programs.
Recent Canadian Forces announcements include CDN$5.2 billion in funding for land-vehicle upgrades and acquisition projects.
"DEW's extensive track record and unmatched products provide a wealth of opportunities for Northstar," says Howard Nash, President of Northstar. "And we bring to the table a solid range of services, exceptional value and quality, and added regional diversity for DEW's supply chain. The relationship we have built with DEW will be mutually rewarding for many years to come."
Northstar and DEW are both committed to Canada's Industrial and Regional Benefit policy, providing 100 per cent Canadian content.
