LONGUEUIL, QC: Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer has awarded Héroux-Devtek Inc its Embraer Suppliers Award this year in the development program category to its landing gear products operations. Héroux-Devtek, a Canadian manufacturer of aerospace and industrial products, was one of eight companies worldwide awarded in as many categories. The company won the same award in 2008.

The award recognizes performance excellence in quality, flexibility, deliveries, customer support and development by Héroux-Devtek’s landing gear products operations for their involvement in the Legacy 450 and 500 business jet programs. The corporation designs and develops the landing gear for the jets as part of a life-cycle contract.

“This award further confirms our strong relationship with Embraer which has fostered a true spirit of partnership between the two organizations,” said Martin Brassard, vice-president and general manager of Héroux-Devtek’s landing gear products. “More importantly, our entire team remains fully engaged and eager to continue supporting this important development phase for both aircraft programs.”
