Company Description

Curtiss-Wright Corp. is a diversified, multinational provider of highly engineered, critical function products and services to the commercial, industrial, defense and energy markets. The company operates through three segments: Flow Control, Controls and Surface Technologies. The Flow Control segment specializes in the design and manufacture of highly engineered, critical-function products including valves, pumps, motors, generators, instrumentation, shipboard systems, vessels, control electronics, and energy production and processing solutions. These products manage the flow of liquids and gases, generate power, provide electronic operating systems, and monitor or provide critical functions. The Flow Control segment operates through four operating divisions: Electro-Mechanical Systems, Nuclear Group, Oil and Gas Systems, and Marine and Power Products. The Electro-Mechanical Systems division produces advanced electro-mechanical and pumping solutions for the naval defense, power generation, oil and gas, and general industrial markets. The division designs and manufactures advanced critical function pumps, motors, generators, ship propulsors, mechanical seals, control rod drive mechanisms, power conditioning electronics, integrated motor controls, composite materials applications, and protection technologies solutions. The Nuclear Group division designs, manufactures, distributes, and qualifies flow control products for nuclear power plants, nuclear equipment manufacturers, hydroelectric energy producers, the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Defense. The Oil and Gas Systems division provides energy production, processing, and environmental solutions; designs and manufactures valves, vessel products, and related equipment; and also provides maintenance, repair, and overhaul services and support to the global oil and gas industry. The Marine and Power Products division produces high-performance, specialized valve solutions, designs and manufactures valves for commercial nuclear markets and valves, actuators and other shipboard naval systems including aircraft handling systems, cable handlings systems, and specialized electronic instrumentation and control equipment. The Controls segment designs, develops, manufactures, and maintains mechanical actuation and drive systems, specialized sensors, motors and electronic controller units, and mission-critical embedded computing components and control systems. The Controls segment is managed through four operating divisions: Defense Solutions, Flight Systems, Avionics and Industrial, and Integrated Sensing. The Defense Solutions division designs, develops, and manufactures rugged embedded computing board-level modules and integrated subsystems, primarily for the aerospace and ground defense markets, and supports the U.S. Government's Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance applications. The Flight Systems division's product offerings to the commercial OEM and aerospace defense markets consist of electro-mechanical and hydro-mechanical actuation control components and systems that are designed to position aircraft control surfaces or operate flaps, slats, and utility systems such as canopies, cargo doors, weapons bay doors, and other moving devices used on aircraft. The Avionics and Industrial division develops system-level products that acquire, consolidate, analyze, and record all of an aircraft's critical sensor and avionics data. The Integrated Sensing division develops and manufactures a broad range of sensors, controllers, and electronic control systems and subsystems for commercial aviation, aerospace defense, and general industrial markets. The Surface Technologies segment provides technical services to enhance the performance and durability, extend the life, and prevent premature fatigue and failure on customer-supplied metal components. The company was founded on July 5, 1929 and is headquartered in Charlotte, NC.
