Navy Lifts Herley Industries Suspension

Electronic-components maker's manufacturing sites had been barred from receiving federal contracts pending an investigation over falsified test results.

LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) — The Navy has lifted a suspension it imposed on Herley Industries Inc. that barred new contract awards for two of the electronic-components maker's manufacturing locations.
 
The federal government on June 26 barred Herley's manufacturing sites in Lancaster and Woburn, Mass., from receiving federal contracts pending an investigation over falsified test results.
 
The company said the suspension was lifted Wednesday after results of the internal investigation were reviewed by Navy officials.
 
Herley officials suspended three non-management employees — two technicians who had manipulated test results and a supervisor who approved of their changes.
 
Herley designs and makes microwave equipment for the defense, aerospace and medical industries, and employs nearly 1,000 people at facilities in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New York, Illinois, New Jersey, Florida, Virginia, Israel and England.
