Two former college roommates Laurence K. Marshall and Vannevar Bush, along with scientist Charles G. Smith, founded Raytheon Company in Cambridge, Mass., as the American Appliance Company in 1922.

Throughout its more than 80-year history, Raytheon Company has been a leader in developing defense technologies and in converting those technologies for use in commercial markets. From its early days as a maker of radio tubes, its adaptation of World War II radar technology to invent microwave cooking, and its development of the first guided missile, Raytheon has successfully built upon its pioneering tradition to become a global technology leader.

At Raytheon, they are committed to driving strategic growth, establishing an inclusive culture, and developing an environment for learning, because companies that depend on innovation must draw upon the skills of lifelong learners.

A key element of the learning process is embedded in our Raytheon Six Sigma efforts. With each project and employee experience, they learn more about process improvement and providing value to the customer. Raytheon Six Sigma is part of our DNA structure, and it continues to evolve to meet the needs of the business and their customers.
