“Arconic Titanium and Engineered Products’ operations in Big Lake, New Brighton, and Roseville have been leaders in component manufacturing, machining, and forming for aerospace and defense for more than 60 years,” said Jeremy Halford, ATEP president. “Raytheon’s EPIC award is a testament to the skill and dedication our workforce brings to the task of producing high-quality products that help our customers succeed.”

“It is exciting to have two leading companies, Raytheon and Arconic Titanium and Engineered Products, partnering to build innovative, mission-critical systems for our nation’s defense right here in Minnesota,” said Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06).
