Breeze-Eastern to Supply Hydraulic Hoist Controller for USCG MH-65s Under Terms of $8.9 Million Contract


Breeze-Eastern, October 28, 2015 - WHIPPANY, N.J – The U.S. Coast Guard has contracted with Breeze-Eastern Corporation to provide new hydraulic hoist controllers for their MH-65 search and rescue fleet.

The contract provides for deliveries over the next three years with early deliveries acceptable and encouraged.

Breeze-Eastern, the aerospace industry’s only dedicated hoist and winch specialist, received this production contract after the completion of the design, development and qualification prototype contract.

The new controller will replace a 25-year-old legacy system.

While maintaining the existing envelope size and specific required features, the new controller’s interior is a compact modular design, that will reduce maintenance costs and enhance the reliability of the system’s performance.

The fully funded firm fixed price contract is valued at $8.9 million.

“Supporting the U.S. Coast Guard’s lifesaving work is a point of pride for Breeze-Eastern,” said company President and Chief Executive Officer Brad Pedersen. “So modernizing this critical rescue support equipment is an important and exciting opportunity.”

Breeze-Eastern Corporation is the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of high-performance lifting and pulling devices for helicopters, military cargo aircraft, and other aerospace/defense platforms, including rescue hoists, winches and cargo hooks, and weapons-lifting systems.
