Curtiss-Wright Corp. is a diversified, multinational provider of highly engineered, technologically advanced products and services. The company operates through three segments: Flow Control, Controls and Surface Technologies. The Flow Control segment primarily designs, manufactures and distributes highly engineered, critical-function products, including valves, pumps, motors, generators, instrumentation, shipboard systems and control electronics. The segment operates through four operating divisions: Electro-Mechanical Systems, Nuclear Group, Oil & Gas Systems, and Marine & Power Products. The Electro-Mechanical Systems division produces advanced electro-mechanical and pumping solutions for the naval defense, power generation, oil and gas, and other general industrial markets. The Nuclear Group division designs, manufactures, distributes, and qualifies flow control products for nuclear power plants, nuclear equipment manufacturers, hydroelectric energy producers, the DoE, and the Department of Defense. It offers a wide range of hardware, including pumps, valves, pressure vessels, fastening systems, specialized containment doors, airlock hatches, and electrical units. In addition, it provides a range of services including bolting solutions, nuclear storage solutions, spent fuel management solutions, non-destructive examination (NDE), fluid sealing technologies and services, obsolescence solutions, and enterprise resource planning. The Oil and Gas Systems division designs and manufactures valves, vessel products and related equipment, and also provides Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) services and support, to the global oil and gas industry. The Marine & 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 Motion Control segment designs, develops, manufactures and maintains sophisticated, high-performance 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 three operating divisions: Defense Solutions, Flight Systems, Avionics & 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 (C4ISR) 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 division also is a supplier of highly engineered commercial products used in a wide range of industrial applications such as transportation, off-highway equipment, broadcasting and recording, and motorsports. The Integrated Sensing division develops and manufactures a broad range of industry leading 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 segment provides four primary technical services on highly stressed, critical function components: Shot Peening, Laser Peening, Specialty Coatings and Analytical Services. The Shot Peening is a process by which the durability of metal parts is enhanced by bombarding the part's surface with spherical media, such as steel shot or ceramic or glass beads, creating a layer of residual, compressive stress that results in enhanced resistance to fatigue and stress failure. The Laser Peening is a sophisticated surface treatment process that utilizes a proprietary high energy laser developed in conjunction with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The Specialty Coatings primarily consist of the application of solid film lubricant and corrosion resistant protective coatings to metal components used in critical applications for a broad range of industries. The Analytical Services provides mechanical and metallurgical testing services to materials for the aerospace, power generation, and medical markets. The company was founded on July 5, 1929 and is headquartered in Parsippany, NJ.
