GOULDSBORO — Elscott Manufacturing has been awarded a contract to supply material to the U.S. Army Missile Command at Redstone Arsenal, Ala.
Elscott President Will Taylor and the contract is the first for the Army’s missile defense program that requires a wipe cloth coated with silicon fluid to lubricate high-voltage cable connector assemblies inside missiles.
He said Elscott worked with the defense integrator, Raytheon Co., to develop the solution.
“This is a new program for Elscott, Raytheon and the U.S. Army,” Taylor said. “It is our hope that this material proves to be successful and gains a wider audience in other military branches and countries.”
Elscott provides product assembly for the defense, aerospace, medical and automotive sectors.
