Northrop Adds 3 Partners to Global Supply Chain; David Perry Comments

northrop grumman logoNorthrop Grumman has awarded $7.4 million in contracts to three Australian companies as part of the company’s efforts to expand its supply chain in the defense, aerospace and space industries.

Electro Optic Systems, CEA Technologies and Insitec won the contracts under the Australia Defense Materiel Organization’s global supply chain program, the company said Friday.

David Perry, Northrop vice president and chief global business development officer, said the three partners would aim to help the company provide products and services intended to boost security for the United States, Australia and allied nations.

The companies develop aerospace hardware, perform space explorations and design software.

Northrop signed a global supply chain deed with the Australian Defence Department in October 2011 to explore business opportunities for Australia’s supply chain industry.

“We look forward to further expanding our global supply chain and to future investment in Australia’s defence, aerospace and space sector,” Perry said.
