Curtiss-Wright has received contracts to provide vital technologies to the U.S. Navy’s Virginia-class nuclear powered attack submarine, Columbia-class submarine, and Ford-class aircraft carrier programs.

The contracts are valued in excess of $250 million, and the company will be supplying propulsion valves, pumps, and advanced instrumentation and control systems to the programs.

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 performing the work at its facilities in New York and Pennsylvania within the Company’s Defense Electronics and Naval & Power Segments. Engineering and manufacturing have commenced and will continue through 2028.

“Curtiss-Wright is pleased to have been awarded these important naval defense contracts, building upon our long-standing relationship with the U.S. 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 Corporation. “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.”
