Ontic Signs Licensing Agreement

Aerospace supplier Ontic has signed a licensing agreement with Curtiss-Wright Controls Inc. for heat and thermal management products used on missiles, blimps, and other military and commercial aircraft. This is the third licensing deal this year between Chatsworth-based Ontic and Curtiss-Wright Controls, in Charlotte, N.C. The agreement was announced on Monday. The heat and thermal products will move from Curtiss-Wright’s facility in Tempe, Ariz. to Chatsworth where Ontic will provide production and aftermarket manufacturing, and maintenance and repair services. “Ontic’s sole focus is on strategic OEM partners like Curtiss-Wright, providing solutions for the continued support of their mature, legacy, or non-core products and providing lifetime support to the customers,” said President Gareth Hall in a prepared statement. In May, Ontic signed an agreement with Curtiss Wright to supply parts for cockpit controls used on commercial, business and military aircraft. The following month, an agreement was signed to supply monitors, sensors and meters used on military helicopters and commercial jets. Ontic is a subsidiary of BBA Aviation plc, a publicly traded company headquartered in London.
