Krisstie Kondrotis, President - Defense Business, GKN Aerospace said: “This follow-on contract reinforces our partnership with Raytheon Technologies, and is a testimate to our global workforce collaborating to provide the best technology to partners around the world.

I am extremely proud of our GKN Fokker team as they continue to uphold our commitment of quality and on-time delivery to our customers.
