Orbit International's Power Group receives two new orders with a combined value in excess of $925,000
Power Group’s Total Bookings for February 2013 Reach Approximately $1.5 Million
Orbit International Corp. (NASDAQ:ORBT) today announced that its Power Group, through its Behlman Electronics, Inc. subsidiary (“Behlman”), has received two new orders totaling in excess of $925,000.
The first award, valued at $695,880, is a follow-on order for a COTS power supply used in a U.S. Naval anti-submarine and anti-ship surveillance and targeting system. Deliveries under this contract are expected to commence in the third quarter of 2013 and be completed in the fourth quarter of 2013.
The second award, valued at $229,795, is a follow-on order for a COTS high voltage power supply used in the U.S. Navy’s AN/UYQ-21 display console. This high voltage power supply was selected several years ago by the U.S. Navy to resolve an obsolescence issue on these display consoles used throughout its fleet. Deliveries are expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2013.
Ron Storm, President of Behlman commented, “Behlman’s business remains strong across both our COTS and Commercial Divisions. The receipt of repeat production orders such as these two further validates Behlman’s business model, which emphasizes flexible designs, individualized engineering support, and superior customer service. In addition to Behlman’s niche business in COTS power solutions, we are committed to the development of standard products for both our Commercial and COTS Divisions which will form the basis of new product platforms to drive Behlman’s continuing growth in the coming years.”
Mitch Binder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Orbit International Corp. commented, “Behlman’s ability to operate in both the commercial and military COTS marketplace has enabled its business to remain strong despite weak economic conditions over the last two years. Our Power Group’s total bookings for the month of February reached approximately $1.5 million. We continue to expect follow-on awards for both our Power and Electronics Groups although timing is always an issue. Furthermore, despite uncertainty over the future DoD budget, our proposal activity remains very good for both legacy hardware and new opportunities.”
