Wesco Aircraft Holdings Inc., a Valencia aerospace supply chain management company, has renewed a multi-year chemical management services contract with aerospace and defense company Lockheed Martin.
Under the terms of the agreement, Wesco – which employs more than 2,700 workers and reported sales of $1.5 billion in 2016 – will continue supplying and managing chemicals used by Lockheed’s aeronautics, missile fire control, rotary and mission systems and space systems divisions.

“We’re pleased to build on our more than 25-year relationship with Lockheed Martin,” Dave Castagnola, chief executive of Wesco, said in a prepared statement. “This renewed agreement reflects the full value proposition that Wesco is able to deliver to its customers.”
