Top Menu Background

Key Raw Materials and Components + Supply



Raytheon is dependent upon the delivery of materials, parts and components (such as plastics, composite materials and resins, metals, metal parts, electronic components, and explosives) by suppliers. Raytheon also depends on the assembly of major components and subsystems delivered by subcontractors and used in the company's products. Some products require relatively scarce raw materials. In addition, Raytheon must comply with specific procurement requirements which may, in effect, limit the suppliers and subcontractors it may utilize. In some instances, for a variety of reasons, the company is dependent on sole-source suppliers. Raytheon enters into long-term or volume purchase agreements with certain suppliers and take other actions to ensure the availability of needed materials, components and subsystems. Raytheon generally has not experienced material difficulties in procuring the necessary raw materials, components and other supplies for its products.

Raytheon is also subject to rules promulgated by the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) in 2012 pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that require public companies to conduct due diligence on and disclose whether certain materials (including tantalum, tin, gold and tungsten), known as conflict minerals, that originate from mines in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or certain adjoining countries, are used in products that Raytheon manufactures.
