CARY, N.C.—The American Helicopter Society selected Lord Corp. to receive its International Supplier Excellence Award, which is given to a supplier who has made a notable contribution to improving the state of the art of vertical flight aircraft, according to a statement.
In 2016, engineers from Lord were an integral part of a team effort with Sikorsky Aircraft and the U.S. Army's Aviation Development Directorate—Aviation Applied Technology Directorate to flight-demonstrate the Zero-Vibe systems on an AATD UH-60M Black Hawk. Lord also is the recipient of the 2015 AHS International Grover E. Bell Award as part of the Hub Mounted Vibration Suppressor team.
"Lord is a manufacturing company that takes pride in our legacy of value-driven innovation that enables us to deliver affordable solutions for our customers' needs," said Bill Cerami, president, global aerospace and defense. "It is an honor to be recognized by AHS for this prestigious award."
