"We are honored to have received this prestigious award again this year," said Sparton Corporation's Group Vice-President of Mil/Aero Manufacturing Services Jamie Shaddix.
"Raytheon is an important part of our nation's security and we are proud to be a contributor to a service so vital to the American public."
