This afternoon, BAE Systems Protection Systems will celebrate the production of its one millionth combat helmet at its Jessup, Pennsylvania facility. The company manufactures combat helmets for the U.S. Army, the U.S. Marine Corps, the Defense Logistics Agency and several allied forces.

Attending and speaking at the celebration will be U.S. Representative Matthew Cartwright; Major General Wesley Craig, The Adjutant General for the Pennsylvania National Guard; Lieutenant Colonel Frank Lozano of the U.S. Army Program Executive Office. Also in attendance will be Jessup’s Mayor Beverly Merkel.

This ceremony comes at the heels of receiving multiple contracts for U.S. Marine Corps Lightweight Helmets, the most recent being issued earlier this year for $28 million.
