-- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced the U.S. Department of Defense has awarded a $12.88 million dollar contract to Honeywell International to produce turbine nozzles for Abrams Tank engines.
The work will be conducted in Greer and is expected to be completed by December 31, 2005.
"South Carolina provides the U.S. military and our brave men and women in uniform with the latest in military technology," said Graham. "The employees of Honeywell should be proud of the role they play in protecting our way of life and fighting the war on terrorism."
