Northrop Grum­man Cor­po­ra­tion (NOC) an­nounced it is mak­ing additional new in­vest­ments in its Mel­bourne-based Manned Air­craft De­sign Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence. Ini­tial plans call for a new 220,000-square-foot build­ing and the ad­di­tion of 300 em­ploy­ees, with the po­ten­tial for additional jobs and ca­pac­ity in the fu­ture. These in­vest­ments are part of the com­pany’s on­go­ing ef­fort to im­prove its strate­gic align­ment with its cus­tomers’ need for in­creas­ingly in­no­va­tive and af­ford­able prod­ucts, ser­vices and so­lu­tions.

“We’re ex­tremely ap­pre­cia­tive of the sup­port we’ve re­ceived from the state of Florida and the lo­cal com­mu­nity in our con­tin­u­ing ef­fort to drive our af­ford­abil­ity and com­pet­i­tive po­si­tion,” said Tom Vice, Northrop Grum­man Cor­po­rate Vice Pres­i­dent and Pres­i­dent, Aero­space Sys­tems. “This ex­pan­sion fur­ther ce­ments our strong part­ner­ship with Florida, and will greatly ben­e­fit our em­ploy­ees, cus­tomers and share­hold­ers.”

The fa­cil­ity’s con­tin­ued growth, en­abled by Florida’s pos­i­tive busi­ness cli­mate, will en­hance com­pet­i­tive­ness across Northrop Grum­man’s op­er­a­tions and sup­port the com­pany’s fo­cus on cre­at­ing in­no­va­tive and af­ford­able prod­ucts for its cus­tomers.
