The U.S. Department of Defense has awarded contracts to two companies in Indianapolis. The contracts, awarded to Major Tool & Machine Inc. and Rolls-Royce Corp., call for production work for the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy.
Major Tool & Machine will share in a $600 million contract along with Cincinnati-based Faxon Machining Inc. for the production of attack warhead casings for the Air Force.
