Loc Performance Products, Inc. To Partner With BAE On U.S. Army's Paladin Integrated Management Program

PLYMOUTH, Mich., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Michigan-based Loc Performance Products, Inc. will partner with global defense leader BAE Systems to design, test, and manufacture prototype final drive assemblies for the U.S. Army's M109A6/M992A2 Paladin Integrated Management (PIM) program.

With a successful history of designing and producing the highest quality final drive assemblies for a variety of military vehicles, Loc will serve as the design lead for gears, along with providing design review support, developmental testing, and prototype manufacturing for the planned expansion of the self-propelled howitzer and ammunition supply-vehicle fleet.

Lou Burr, President of Loc Performance Products commented, "We are pleased to partner with BAE as we continue to design and produce superior products for our military clients. Loc is honored to be recognized as having an important role in the development of next-generation fighting and supply vehicles, and looks forward to the continued production of reliable, high performing products to meet the diverse needs of our nation's armed forces."

Loc Performance Products has produced over 13,000 final drive assemblies for the U.S. military, spanning the entire Department of Defense fleet of combat tracked vehicles. The expected production of slightly under 600 M109A6/M992A2 vehicle sets will represent the evolution of critical fire and munitions support in Heavy Brigade Combat Teams (HBCT) for a variety of deployments. With an estimated lifecycle through 2050, the PIM program will remain an essential component of the military's tracked vehicle capabilities for the coming decades.

"The contract structure provides maximum value by leveraging Loc's expertise in manufacturing and assembling final drives with BAE's expertise in system engineering design and analysis," said Chad Darr, Director of Product Development at Loc. "It offers the program a smooth transition into Low-Rate-Initial-Production (LRIP) by manufacturing the developmental prototypes utilizing production intent processes."

Loc Performance Products is Michigan's premier full service manufacturer of large CNC machined components and assemblies for military and industrial applications. With proven capabilities in product design and development through production, Loc offers comprehensive solutions and exceptional customer service to produce the highest quality products at competitive pricing.
