Huntington Beach, CA (May 12, 2015) – Fibreform Precision Machining, a premier supplier to the aerospace and defense industries, successfully completed its first deliveries on the Joint Strike Fighter Program for Northrop Grumman, the fifth largest defense contractor in the world.

The Joint Strike Fighter Program will provide the next advanced systems of fighter, strike, and ground attack aircraft for the Navy, Air Force, Marines, and other U.S. allies.
