Washington, D.C. – March 22, 2017 – TEVET, LLC, (SDVOSB & HUBZone) a leading supplier of precision modular instrumentation, subsystems, and complete test stations for the Defense and Aerospace industry, attended the Eleventh Annual Washington, D.C., F-35 Supplier Conference sponsored by Lockheed Martin Corporation, Northrop Grumman, BAE Systems, and Pratt & Whitney. TEVET attended to gain updates on the F-35 program and to engage with our Congress members to request their support for the F-35 program amongst the current critical defense budget deliberations.

TEVET and other influential small businesses are instrumental components in affordably producing and supporting the F-35 for the U.S. and its allied partners. Likewise, the F-35 program is instrumental in providing increased economic impacts within our community through increased employment.

At TEVET, we have seen a significant employment increase over the past 6 months. In fact, the Lockheed Martin account team has doubled in size to meet Lockheed’s increasing demands regarding the F-35 program.

TEVET was honored to be active in the deliberation for the need to accelerate recapitalization of the F-35 program. TEVET stands behind our warfighters having the most advance equipment on the battlefield and all positive economic impacts in our local communities.
