US industrial conglomerate Curtiss-Wright has announced plans to expand its naval footprint by buying 901D Holdings, which makes ruggedised shipboard enclosures and electronic subsystems for the US Navy.
Curtiss-Wright, whose existing naval products include electronic monitoring systems and nuclear propulsion system parts, said on 26 November that the acquisition will enhance its ability to support the US Navy's growing ship fleet.
Based in Airmont, New York, about 30 miles north of Manhattan, 901D supplies such prime defence contractors as Boeing, General Dynamics, Leonardo DRS, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, and Serco.
