A Unique Opportunity
We believe that Sypris has a unique opportunity to build upon its leadership position in each of its business segments.
In our Aerospace and Defense segment, Sypris has been a leading provider of information security solutions for electronic key management, identity authentication, encryption and cyber security for the Department of Defense and intelligence communities for almost 50 years. We have partnered with Purdue University and Carnegie Mellon to focus on the development of Trusted Architecture for secure systems, and with the California Institute of Technology to develop biometric solutions for identity authentication and management. Our security solutions protect the most classified data and networks in the world.
Sypris is also known for its long-standing partnerships as a "Trusted Source" for custom electronic design and manufacturing services, including systems for satellite power supplies, box-builds for land-based systems and electronic components for such key programs as Joint Strike Fighter. Sypris customers, including Honeywell, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Raytheon, have relied upon Sypris to provide electronic assemblies for use in the Apache helicopter, the AMRAAM missile, the F-16 Fighting Falcon, the Cobra Judy ship-based radar missile detection suite and the Viper multi-band infrared missile defense laser.
In our Industrial segment, Sypris is one of the leading suppliers of drivetrain components for the commercial vehicle and trailer markets in North America.
