Raytheon Missile Systems relies on goods and services from around the globe to build its state-of-the-art defense and security products.
Yet among the company’s most valued suppliers are the ones here at home. Raytheon spends $82 million annually with Tucson suppliers. Statewide, Raytheon spends more than $150 million with 450 Arizona suppliers.
“We absolutely enjoy a great relationship with local suppliers,” said Mike Jarrett, Raytheon’s vice president of supply chain management.
