Intertrade, a Rockwell Collins subsidiary, to support over 500 parts

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (July 10, 2017) - L-3 Communications recently awarded Rockwell Collins a repair chain management contract to support the repair of over 500 parts for the U.S. Air Force on 59 KC-10 aircraft. Rockwell Collins will manage 4,000 repairs annually in partnership with Intertrade, a Rockwell Collins company.

Rockwell Collins and Intertrade encompass a trusted source of components and repair chain solutions, and an established track record as key service providers for repair chain management, said Thierry Tosi, vice president and general manager, Service Solutions.

As part of the contract, Rockwell Collins and Intertrade will leverage current vendor networks and provide logistics support through a distribution center in Memphis, Tennessee.
