LOS ANGELES -- February 19, 2013

Ducommun Incorporated (NYSE: DCO) has received a series of contracts from
AgustaWestland Philadelphia Corporation to produce specialized, complex wiring
harnesses for the new AW139 multi-mission helicopter. Ducommun LaBarge
Technologies will produce the wiring harnesses through December 2014 at the
Company’s Joplin, Mo., facility.

"We are excited that AgustaWestland has selected Ducommun for this new
opportunity,” said Anthony J. Reardon, chairman, president and chief executive
officer. “We have a long history of supporting AgustaWestland through our
Ducommun AeroStructures group and are pleased to be able to support them on
this important program through our Ducommun LaBarge Technologies group. We
have the technology, manufacturing expertise, and high-level support required
by AgustaWestland, and look forward to growing our relationship on the AW139
helicopter and beyond."

The AW139 sets new standards for multi-mission performance via its unrivaled
range; the highest power-to-weight ratio in its class; and its performance
under extreme conditions – along with cruising speeds of up to 165 knots. It
features a low acoustic signature, integrated mission avionics and is
available with a full ice protection system, allowing aircrews to accomplish
missions in the most demanding environments. More than 180 customers in 60
countries use the medium-twin engine AW139 for multi-mission roles. As the
most modern and versatile helicopter designed and produced in the last decade,
nearly 670 AW139s have been sold worldwide.
