Germany’s Jenoptik signs agreement with Raytheon
Raytheon and Germany’s Lechmotoren, a company of the Jenoptik Group, signed a letter of intent to cooperate in mutually beneficial business opportunities related to Germany’s air defence architecture, as well as significant exports to global markets. The companies will examine opportunities in current international projects with Jenoptik state-of-the-art equipment. Jenoptik presented a prototype of their next-generation technologies such as the new Jenoptik Patriot hybrid power supply to Raytheon and Bavarian members of parliament, which initiated discussions about the significant fuel and maintenance cost reductions it would result in.
“We are very proud that this long-term partnership with Raytheon assures the ongoing success in serving international markets out of our Bavarian site,” said Stefan Stenzel, Executive Vice President and Head of Jenoptik Defense & Civil Systems division.
“Jenoptik is a reputable company and we look forward to establishing a long-term relationship with them on future opportunities related to the TVLS programme, Global Patriot and beyond,” said Doug Patrick, Director of Integrated Air and Missile Defense Supply Chain, Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems.
