The awards were received from Bechtel Plant Machinery Inc (BPMI) to support ship construction, spare parts and submarine back-fit procurements.

“Curtiss-Wright is pleased to have been awarded these important naval defense contracts, building upon our long-standing relationship with the US Nuclear Navy and reflecting our ongoing support of these critical naval defense platforms, which continue to receive strong Congressional support,” said Lynn Bamford, chair and CEO of Curtiss-Wright. “We look forward to delivering the most advanced, reliable and vital technologies and remain well-positioned to benefit from the continued expansion of our US naval fleet.”

Curtiss-Wright is performing this work at its facilities in New York and Pennsylvania within the company’s Defense Electronics and Naval & Power Segments.

Engineering and manufacturing have already started and will continue through 2029.
