Norway's Kongberg Gruppen ASA said Friday that its defence-and-aerospace unit has signed an agreement worth 1.75 billion Norwegian kroner ($202.4 million) with Lockheed Martin Aeronautics to supply parts for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.

The agreement includes delivery of a range of components for more than 500 aircraft, and production will continue through 2025, it said.

"The F-35 production program is now at full rate production and this contract secures work for the next four years, as well as positioning us for continued participation in future production lots," said Terje Brathen, Kongsberg defence-and-aerospace executive vice president of aerostructures.
