AAR Receives $40 Million Order for Container Roll-in/Out Platforms

WOOD DALE, Ill., /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AAR CORP. (NYSE: AIR) announced today that it has received an order to provide Containerized Roll-in/Out Platforms (CROP) for the U.S. Army, valued at $40 million. The platforms will be manufactured by AAR's SUMMA Technology facility in Cullman, Alabama through 2010. This new order, as well as a $26 million order announced in July 2008, is part of a five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract that was established in 2005.

The CROP is a rolling flatrack platform that fits inside standard-sized 20-foot containers used by the Army to transport and deliver supplies and equipment across its multi-modal distribution system.

"We are proud to continue to provide this equipment, which serves as an integral part of the Army's pipeline for delivering mission-critical supplies and munitions," said Timothy J. Romenesko, President and Chief Operating Officer of AAR CORP. "AAR SUMMA Technology contributes meaningfully to the diversity of AAR's products, services and capabilities and strengthens our ability to support defense customers' demanding logistics requirements."

Headquartered in Huntsville, Alabama, AAR SUMMA Technology operates additional facilities in Cullman, Alabama and Lebanon, Kentucky, totaling over 420,000 square feet of manufacturing space.

AAR is a leading provider of products and value-added services to the worldwide aerospace and defense industry. With facilities and sales locations around the world, AAR uses its close-to-the customer business model to serve aviation and defense customers through four operating segments: Aviation Supply Chain; Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul; Structures and Systems and Aircraft Sales and Leasing.
