SCHOTT North America Inc. recently announced the creation of SCHOTT Defense, legally known as SCHOTT Government Services LLC, reportedly marking the final stage in the planned strategic separation between SCHOTT North America Inc. and its defense segment. As part of SCHOTT Defense’s formation, General Michael Williams, USMC (Ret.), Marvin Sambur, Ph.D., and General John Corley, USAF (Ret.), will bring years of defense and manufacturing expertise to the company as outside directors to the Board.
“The final completion of the SCHOTT Defense transition allows us to further strengthen and secure our long-term partnership with the U.S. military, as well as optimize market access to the most sensitive U.S. defense, intelligence, and homeland security programs,” said Major General Scott Custer, USAF (Ret.), president and CEO of SCHOTT Defense. “As the defense community continues to seek sensitive technology solutions to enhance operational capability and performance, SCHOTT Defense now has more access and flexibility to deliver innovations to protect the warfighter while reducing redundancy and minimizing life cycle costs.”
