Leslie Controls Wins Virginia Class Valve Contract
Leslie Controls, part of the Thermal Fluid Division of Circor International, has been awarded a $5.65 million-dollar contract to provide valves to the United States Navy for ten Block V Virginia-class submarines.
The a worldwide manufacturer of valves for the power generation, industrial, marine and oil and gas markets for over a century said that with authorization to begin material acquisition immediately, the schedule calls for delivering two shipsets worth of equipment each year for the next five years.
Florida-based Leslie Controls’ early procurement strategies for material consolidation will aid the customer in realizing economies and savings for the program.
“Leslie Controls’ relationship with the U.S. Navy started with shipbuilding programs prior to World War I,” said Dean Lyons, Navy Senior Program Manager.
“Our people have always felt honored by the responsibility entrusted to us by the U.S. Navy and we’re pleased to add this contract to the legacy. CIRCOR’s recent acquisition of Portland Valve and Warren Pumps only increases our capabilities and we expect it will strengthen our relationship even further,” Dean added.
