BAE Systems, Northrop Grumman Open New Facilities

BAE Systems and Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) each opened new facilities in different parts of the country.

BAE cut the ribbon on a new prototyping center in Sterling Heights, Mich., while Northrop Grumman opened a new infrared countermeasures (IRCM) sustainment center in Warner Robins, Ga.

NGC feels the new center will help it deliver the best possible ICRM product to customers.

“Today’s ribbon cutting is an example of our commitment to provide the warfighter with an innovative solution to sustain this critical aircraft defensive system, ” said Thomas E. Vice, corporate vice president and president of Northrop Grumman Technical Services. “This facility also benefits our customers by driving down the cost and providing high-quality, affordable IRCM services.”

BAE’s new facility is the first to open at the company’s new Sterling Heights campus which, according to the firm, “will include a renovated test track and a four-story office building, eventually housing approximately 600 employees” upon completion next year.”

The new facility provides the opportunity for the firm to build a better relationship with customers.

“One of our most important company values is customer focus, ” said Joe McCarthy, vice president and general manager of Heavy Brigade Combat Team Systems at BAE Systems and Sterling Heights site executive. “This center will allow us to be in close proximity to our customer – a key component in further developing an ongoing, collaborative working relationship that supports the design, development and manufacture of equipment that will help ensure the safety and mission success of warfighters.”
