Raytheon subsidiary receives $15M Defense contract

The U.S. The Department of Defense announced a $15 million contract for Windsor Locks-based UTC Aerospace to make components for fighter jets.

UTC Aerospace, which is formally called Hamilton Sundstrand Corp., will make gear boxes, hydraulic starter motors and other components for F-16 jets between 2020 and 2025, according to DOD. 

Work on the project will be performed at locations in Illinois, Iowa and Utah, said a UTC spokesperson from Collins Aerospace, a subsidiary of Raytheon Technologies.

Raytheon Technologies was formed last year through the $180-billion merger between Farmington-based United Technologies Corp. and defense contractor Raytheon. The company is now based in Massachusetts. 

As with many companies in the manufacturing sector, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in cuts at Raytheon.
