PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Jun 19, 2017) - PARIS INTERNATIONAL AIR SHOW - Esterline Corporation (www.esterline.com) (NYSE: ESL), a leading global specialty manufacturer primarily serving the aerospace and defense markets, today announced that its TA Aerospace operation in Valencia, Calif., a business unit within Esterline Engineered Materials (www.esterline.com/engineeredmaterials), has won a four-year, $31 million Long Term Agreement (LTA) with KLX Inc. for clamping solutions in support of Boeing Defense Services.

Esterline Engineered Materials President Brian Olsen said, "This win is an example of our strong partnership with the KLX Aerospace Solutions team and our ability to provide superior products in some of the harshest military environments. We are pleased to be a part of keeping the specialized equipment on these aircraft running smoothly so pilots can focus on important mission objectives."

Bob Loycano, KLX VP Supply Chain said, "We are excited to continue to strengthen our partnership with Esterline with this long term agreement which will provide for a secure and stable supply of products for our customers."

Products being supplied under this agreement include a variety of clamping and wire management solutions to support Boeing Military Aircraft warfighters, which include the F/A -18, F-15, C-17, and F-22, to name a few.
