General Dynamics consolidates business groups, creates GD Mission Systems

General Dynamics has combined its Advanced Information Systems and C4 Systems groups into a new business unit called General Dynamics Mission Systems.

The restructuring will be in effect as of January 2015, the company said in a release.

“This restructuring will make us more efficient, cost-effective and responsive to our customers. Combining these organizations will leverage their complementary capabilities and further enhance performance,” said executive vice president David Heebner.

General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems is comprised of 5,700 employees who provide mission-related systems development, integration and operations support, whereas General Dynamics C4 Systems’ 7,400 employees provide secure communications, information systems and technology.

Current C4 Systems president Chris Marzilli will lead the business unit, which will be located in Fairfax, Va.

General Dynamics is the worst company EVER! A company where the CEO gets a 7 million dollar bonus 2 weeks after they lay off 250 people from 1 plant and 50 more gets their pay cut $4 an hour!
