Northrop Grumman Corporation has officially opened a new operational area of its Beavercreek facility in Ohio and has reaffirmed its intent to add manufacturing jobs at the site. Recent upgrades at the facility have enabled new work on strategic aerospace programmes to come to the site, diversifying the portfolio of work and bringing new jobs to the area.

For more than three decades, Ohio employees have manufactured advanced aerospace and defense products in the Dayton aerospace sector that support the US and its global allies, Northrop Grumman said in a press release. Northrop Grumman is a leading global security company providing innovative systems, products and solutions in autonomous systems, cyber, C4ISR, space, strike, and logistics and modernisation to customers worldwide.

"Northrop Grumman has expanded our operations in Beavercreek and grown our aerospace workforce at this site by more than 50 percent since early 2017. This has been possible through the development of advanced technologies and innovation by our team, coupled with partnerships with the state of Ohio and the Greene County Community Improvement Corporation. We greatly appreciate the strong support from state and local partners and our federal delegation," said Wendy Williams, vice president and general manager, aerospace structures, Northrop Grumman.

The Beavercreek facility was expanded by 35,000 square feet in 2017-2018 as a result of additional work and a recent award of an approximate $90 million contract to supply high temperature composites for the US military. The 154,000-square-foot facility currently has more than 140 employees and produces advanced aerospace and defense composite structures.

"This expansion signifies the commitment Northrop Grumman has to its employees, the community and the state of Ohio to continue bringing high quality manufacturing work into the area," said Richard Passmore, director of operations, aerospace structures-Dayton, Northrop Grumman. "We value our partnership with state, city and county officials and thank them for their continued support."

In addition to the work at Beavercreek, Northrop Grumman also supports customers located at Wright Patterson Air Force Base including the Air Force Materiel Command, Air Force Research Laboratory and Air Force Life Cycle Management Center. (RR)
