Mexico’s Ministry of Defence needed depot maintenance for its C-130K Hercules aircraft but its open tender received no qualifying bids.
When it learned of Cascade Aerospace (Abbotsford, British Columbia), it contacted CCC to explore a government to government contracting solution. In 2013, Cascade signed a $35-million contract with Mexico, with CCC’s expedited procurement process and Government of Canada assurance of contract performance instrumental in closing the deal.
Cascade also received favourable payment terms, which in turned lowered the contract costs for the Ministry of Defence.
