Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) has announced that the company will locate the new corporate office in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
“We are pleased to have identified Virginia as the home for our new corporate office. Virginia, Maryland and the District put forward compelling, competitive offers. Our final decision was driven largely by facility considerations, proximity to our customers, and overall economics, ” said Wes Bush, chief executive officer and president. “We are very appreciative for the tremendous assistance we received from Governor O’Malley and the State of Maryland, Mayor Fenty and the District of Columbia, and Governor McDonnell and the Commonwealth of Virginia as well many local counties and municipalities.”
Northrop is currently in talks with several building owners in the Arlington/Falls Church area. The company expects to begin operations in the new office in the summer of 2011.
