$30M Bradley contract means work for BAE in York County

By ,

The U.S. Army has awarded a $30.7 million contract to BAE Systems' Land and Armaments division in Michigan for work on Bradley Fighting Vehicles, which will include work for the defense contractor's York County facility.

BAE will work on engineering, design, logistics, test and evaluation support of the Bradley's engineering and technology upgrades, according to the Department of Defense.

Work on the contract will be performed at BAE's West Manchester Township facility, as well as in Michigan, California and South Carolina.

Although work continues on the Bradley vehicles, BAE and its supplier companies are worried the Army will institute a three-year pause in the upgrade programs. The companies have said that would cost more in the long run and necessitate the layoff of about 250 people in York County, as well as thousands around the country.

London-based BAE, which has its U.S. headquarters in Virginia, recently announced it would be closing its facility in Fayette County.
