Levett Engineering is an Australian owned
company, headquartered in Adelaide’s industrial
northern suburbs. Its 25 year history of growth
is a result of commitment to excellence as a
precision component manufacturer.
Levett has a long history of engineering aeronautical
components for the Aerospace sector. When the
Australian Government invested in the 5th generation
F-35 Joint Strike Fighter project in 2002, Levett
Engineering made the decision to become an active
participant in this project – one of only a small handful
of companies to enroll at the time.
More than a decade on, this decision has helped
shape the success of the company and establish it as
a respected member of the elite group of organisations
that comprise the manufacturing team of the Lockheed
Martin F-35 . In 2009, Levett Engineering won the
prestigious national “Emerging Exporter Category” at
the Australian Export Awards for its early exports into
the F-35 program.
Levett Engineering has a broad range of multi-pallet
five axis milling machines (up to 800 x 1050 x 800
mm), and five axis turning machines, manufacturing
components and assemblies for defence and
aerospace customers globally. Levett has standardised
on the DMG range of machining centres.
Using the latest machine tool technology and
collaborating with the world’s leading cutting
tool companies has allowed the highly-skilled
Levett Engineering team to continuously improve
manufacturing capability across a broad range of
material types, including titanium, steel, aluminium and
a range of alloys.
Levett Engineering delivers to a wide range of
customers who form part of the supply chain for the
F-35. We supply over 150 separate components on the
F-35, from fracture critical components in the airframe,
along with landing gear and wing components, through
to electronics housings.
Additionally, Levett is the only Australian supplier of
machined components for the F-135 engine, which
powers the JSF.

Levett also machines components and makes
assemblies for a number of commercial aircraft,
including the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, Boeing 737,
Embraer passenger jets and Gulfstream Business
Jets. This commercial aircraft work flowed from Levett’s
performance and skill base developed for the F-35 .
Levett also supports the local production and
overhaul of Defence systems for Land, Sea and Air.
As an example, our ongoing work with the Collins
Class Submarines includes reverse engineering of
engine componentry and exotic material component
manufacture for the periscope assemblies.

Pilots in Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, use Full Mission Simulators as
part of their training with F-35s. The F-35 simulators can also be found
at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Arizona, where Marine Fighter Attack
Squadron (VMFA) 121 trains. The F-35 Full Mission Simulator accurately
replicates all sensors and weapons to provide a realistic mission
rehearsal and training environment. (U.S. Marine Corps photo)
