The awards were received from Bechtel Plant Machinery Inc (BPMI) and General Dynamics Electric Boat 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 M Bamford, chair and CEO of Curtiss-Wright.

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 started and will continue through to 2028.
