Curtiss-Wright Corp. has won a nearly $50 million order for valves that the U.S. Navy intends to install on three of its naval platforms.
Curtiss-Wright received the award from Bechtel Plant Machinery Inc., NAVSUP Mechanicsburg and General Dynamics Electric Boat for the Navy’s Virginia Class Submarines, Ford Class Aircraft Carriers and Nuclear Propulsion Training Units, Curtiss-Wright said Wednesday.
David Adams, president and CEO of Curtiss-Wright, said the company aims to help the Navy fulfill requirements for national defense platforms and reduce costs.
Curtiss-Wright's flow control division will produce the valves at its East Farmingdale, N.Y.-based facility from now until 2017.
The company has been supplying propulsion systems products to the Navy for more than 50 years, Curtiss-Wright says.
