Delegation Announces Partnership Between SEO Precision of Crosby, North Dakota and Northrop Grumman

Agreement will bolster North Dakota start-up, development of high-tech tools for U.S. military

U.S. Senators Byron Dorgan and Kent Conrad and
Congressman Earl Pomeroy announced today that SEO Precision of Crosby, North
Dakota, has formed a new, formal partnership with Northrop Grumman, a major
government contractor that will open the door to new opportunities for
high-technology growth in North Dakota.

The delegation has long worked to help connect North Dakota businesses with
large federal contractors, an effort that has paid off again for the state’s
growing economy. The latest deal is a formal, Department of
Defense-sponsored Mentor-Protégé agreement between SEO Precision and
Northrop Grumman’s Space Technology sector in Redondo Beach, Calif.

Northrop Grumman is a leader in the development of high-energy laser systems

Precision, a leader in the design and manufacturing of fast-steering mirrors
that are used in laser systems.

companies and one of our nation’s largest contractors is a boost on two
fronts – it will help produce better technology for our troops and, at the
same time, support good-paying jobs in rural North Dakota," the delegation
said in a joint statement. "We’re proud we could help make this agreement a
