Aeroforge secures contract to support KC-46 Tanker Program
Earlier this summer, Aeroforge won a coveted spot amongst ten aerospace companies for a potential 10-year, $485 million United States Air Force contract. The contract supports the tooling and equipment requirement for the KC-46 Pegasus Tanker for the United States and other foreign military allies through the US Government Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program.
According to the U.S. Air Force, the KC-46A provides greater fueling, cargo and aeromedical evacuation capabilities compared to older models and will provide aerial refueling support for the Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps and partner-nation receivers.

Aeroforge was selected due to its competitive pricing and reliable lead times as well as the strong history of performance in fulfilling U.S. Government contracts. Aeroforge has also recently fulfilled a five-year contract to support the P-8 Poseidon for the US Navy and our foreign military allies with zero quality rejects.
“This contract allows our team to manufacture, repair and inspect vital parts for the Boeing KC-46 Pegasus tanker for the U.S. Airforce and foreign military customers,” said Aeroforge Owner and CEO Evan Brown. “We are proud to continue our history of supporting the U.S. military while simultaneously furthering the growth and development of our local economy right here in Puyallup, Washington.”
Aeroforge is veteran owned and operated and has proudly supported the U.S. Military for over 50 years. The organization is honored to receive such a valuable and long-term contract with the federal government.
