... Plant Will Close In January Instead Of Summer

In other news, Raytheon announced it will close its plant for 10 days from Jan. 5 to Jan. 16, the company confirmed in late April. It's the second year the plant will shut down in the winter rather than following its previous practice of closing for a week each July.
