Honeywell helps build Navy's most advanced warship

The U.S. Navy’s newest aircraft carrier, Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78), will be christened on Saturday, November 9, and Honeywell is celebrating the company’s contribution to the ship’s construction. With a workforce of approximately 132,000, Honeywell supplied a variety of systems and solutions including electromechanical valve actuators, inertial measurement units and personal protective equipment.  Honeywell’s next-generation products have enabled automation of many functions on the ship as well as reduced number of parts to be maintained for spares and provisioning, which reduces the overall operating cost. In addition, Honeywell’s personal protective equipment products are contributing to the overall safety of the men and women responsible for protecting our nation.

Ford’s christening marks the accomplishment of years of construction and design and man hours. Honeywell is part of a vital defense industrial base consisting of more than 2,000 small, mid-sized, and large businesses from 46 states that provides parts and services for Ford-class carriers.

Ford is the first new carrier design in 40 years and reflects concepts and technologies matured during 100 years of U.S. Navy carrier operations. The ship will soon take its place in the nation’s carrier fleet, where it will continue the legacy of air power “from the sea” as the cornerstone of U.S. military supremacy around the globe. Ford’s design will enable it to adapt to the ever-changing requirements necessary to support carrier aviation well into the future.

“By providing highly reliable and technologically advanced equipment in a standardized configuration, Honeywell was able to help the Navy lower the number of parts required for maintenance – and ultimately lowering the overall operating costs. Honeywell is proud and honored to stand alongside the many men and women on the Gerald R. Ford who will be depending on our technology and mission-critical equipment in the open seas,” said Mike Madsen, president of Honeywell Aerospace’s Defense & Space.

Dennis - Suns Check

Fulton Homes, Suns Reunite for 3-Point Program

This season, the only thing standing between the Phoenix Suns and a patriotic gesture is a white line 23 feet nine inches away from the basket.

For the second year in a row Tempe-based Fulton Homes is uniting with the Phoenix Suns for the Fulton Homes “Proud to own the Three-Point Zone” program. This season when a Phoenix Suns player drains a three-pointer, Fulton Homes will write a $100 check to the U.S. Navy League. This year’s sponsorship includes both home and away games broadcast on Fox Sports Arizona, a minimum of 75 games.

Founded in 1902, The Navy League of the United States is an organization that serves, supports all the sea services – U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Coast Guard and U.S.-flag Merchant Marine. The Navy League is comprised of 46,000 civilians in more than 250 councils around the world working to support sea service members and their families. For more, visit: http://navyleague.org.

Last year alone, through the Three-Point Zone program, Fulton Homes donated $46,000 between the Youth Assistance Foundation and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Mountain Rescue. In previous seasons, Fulton Homes has donated more than $206,000 over to local charities through Phoenix Suns Charities.

“Fulton Homes is really excited to partner again with the Phoenix Suns to benefit the U.S. Navy League,” Doug Fulton, CEO of Fulton Homes, said. “As the Suns keep improving their three-point game, we will be able to support the U.S. Navy League and the good work they do for military families and youth through programs such as the Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Junior ROTC and Young Marines.”
