Company wins contract to equip 2 spy planes
By LAURA ERNDE
A Hagerstown area company recently inked a $12 million military contract that secures about 100 jobs, company officials said.
California Microwave won its bid to equip two surveillance planes for the U.S. Army, said Chuck Angelo, vice president and general manager of the plant.
The company already is in the process of retrofitting the commercial planes for military use.
The company had been counting on the $12 million contract to give it another 18 months of work, Angelo said.
"It's a thriving business. We plan on being here well into the future," he said.
The Belcamp, Md.-based company has been leasing space at Top Flight Airpark hangar at Washington County Regional Airport since February 1996.
