BAE Systems welcomes Manufacturing and Defense Industrial Base Report

BAE Systems, Inc. welcomes the Administration’s work on Assessing and Strengthening the Manufacturing and Defense Industrial Base and Supply Chain Resiliency of the United States.
A healthy manufacturing and defense industrial base and strong supply chains are essential components to achieving the Department of Defense’s National Defense Strategy and providing economic prosperity to the United States.
BAE Systems, Inc. was pleased to support this assessment. We look forward to continuing to work with the Administration on implementing recommendations to address gaps and weaknesses in the defense industrial base, especially in the areas of curbing burdensome regulations and policies, and addressing workforce challenges related to diminishing STEM and trade skills.
BAE Systems, Inc. continues to invest significantly in its own manufacturing industrial base network, its people and its supplier base to diversify production, increase capacity and efficiency and expand jobs across our enterprise in York, Pa., Elgin, Okla., Aiken, SC, Anniston, Ala and Nashua, NH.
