Curtiss-Wright has won contracts totaling over $250 million to assist the U.S. Navy with ship construction, spare parts and submarine back-fit procurements for the Virginia-class nuclear-powered attack submarine, Columbia-class submarine and Ford-class aircraft carrier projects.
The contracts were issued by Bechtel Plant Machinery, Inc. and General Dynamics Electric Boat, and under these awards, Curtiss-Wright will deliver propulsion valves, pumps and advanced instrumentation and control systems, the Davidson, North Carolina-based company announced on Monday.
Lynn Bamford, chair and CEO of Curtiss-Wright and a previous Wash100 Award recipient, said the organization is pleased to expand its already established relationship with the Navy and demonstrate its continuous support for these naval defense platforms through these awards.
“We look forward to delivering the most advanced, reliable and vital technologies and remain well-positioned to benefit from the continued expansion of our U.S. naval fleet,” Bamford said.
Work will be conducted through 2028 and will take place at Curtiss-Wright facilities in New York and Pennsylvania within its Defense Electronics and Naval & Power units.
The company’s partnership with the Navy began over six decades ago, and since then, it has provided a variety of products for the service branch’s nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers as well as other services.
Last year, this relationship was further cultivated when Curtiss-Wright received more than $220 million in contracts for Navy support also awarded by Bechtel Plant Machinery and GD Electric Boat. Under these contracts, Curtiss-Wright is responsible for delivering propulsion valves, pumps and instrumentation and control systems for two Navy submarines and an aircraft carrier.
