Congressman Stephen F. Lynch recently visited ITT Integrated Structures based in Walpole.  Lynch toured the facility, received an update on defense-related projects and met with employees for a town hall style meeting.  Lynch previously visited the facility in 2002.

“I continue to be impressed with the accuracy and the innovation of ITT Integrated Structures.  During my many trips to the Middle East, I have seen firsthand that your work helps keep our soldiers safer,” Lynch said.  “I thank all the workers here for everything they do for their country.”

Founded in 1984, ITT Integrated Structures develops and manufactures composite components for the defense, aerospace and commercial industries.  The company is known as a leader in the field of braided composite structures and currently has 14 active government contracts.  ITT Integrated Structures developed and continues to produce the lightweight airframe for the Air Force’s highly successful JASSM missile.  ITT employs 68 workers at their Walpole facility.  

“ITT Integrated Structures not only provides our armed forces with cutting-edge technology but also provides a boost to our local economy,” Lynch added.  “The continued growth and success of this company is testament to the talent and skill of its employees.”

In the 110th Congress, Lynch serves on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee and is a member of National Security and Foreign Affairs Subcommittee.  He has visited Iraq nine times to monitor and assess military operations and reconstruction efforts.
