Levett Engineering has a long history of engineering aeronautical components for the Aerospace sector. When the Australian Government invested in the 5th generation F-35 Joint Strike Fighter project in 2002, the Levett Engineering management team made the decision to become an active participant in this project – one of only a small handful of companies to enrol at the time. More than a decade on, this decision has helped shape the success of the company and establish it as a respected member of the elite group of organisations that comprise the manufacturing team of the Lockheed Martin F35.
Using the latest machine tool technology and collaborating with the world’s leading cutting tool companies has allowed the highly-skilled Levett Engineering team to continuously improve manufacturing capability across a broad range of material types, including Titanium.
Another unique advantage of Levett Engineering is our Advanced Aerospace Component Manufacturing Facility. This remarkable capability has allowed us to commercialise our experimental R&D investment in a number of areas, through the securing of new contracts in the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) development program and other defence, aerospace engineering and commercial aviation projects.
