LaBarge awarded $10.7 million contract for mail sorting system
Jun 30, 2006
LaBarge, Inc. has been awarded a $10.7 million contract to continue to provide Northrop Grumman Corporation with electromechanical subsystems and modules for a state-of-the-art automated mail sorting system. The award continues LaBarge's production of the assemblies through May 2007.
The LaBarge-built equipment is part of the Automated Flats Sorting Machine-Automated Induction (AFSM-ai) system, a fleet of machines that together can sort 26 billion pieces of flat mail per year. LaBarge began manufacturing the subsystems and modules in July 2005, under a previous contract. The equipment enhances the system's in-feed units, which the Company manufactured between 1999 and 2002.
LaBarge, a Northrop Grumman preferred supplier, will perform the work at its Huntsville, Ark., facility.
