Southampton-based Environmental Tectonics Corporation is one of approximately ten small firms across the country competing to get a portion of a nearly $2 billion contract to build United States Navy and Marine Corps training systems, according to the company.
"We are delighted to have been selected to be a holder for this contract and look forward to seeing our many technologies put to work on behalf of the U.S. Navy," ETC President and CEO William Mitchell said.
Last week, the company also announced it had received $4.5 million in new contracts with various accounts.
"Our success in winning these contracts is largely due to our control system capabilities and our capacity to tailor those solutions to our clients' unique business and technical needs," David Mitchell, a business unit manager, said in a statement.
The company produces aircrew training systems, disaster management systems, sterilizers (steam and gas), environmental testing products, hyperbaric chambers and several similar products. The National Aerospace Training and Research Center is also based at the company's Southampton headquaters.
