Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC) said it has dedicated its new Aircraft Integration Center of Excellence in St. Augustine, where it has a 34-year legacy of operations.
Set against the backdrop of construction of a new 368,000 square foot aircraft production facility, approximately 500 employees, local business leaders, and federal, state and local elected officials gathered to celebrate the formal establishment of Northrop Grumman´s St. Augustine manufacturing facility as a centre of excellence.
The company recently broke ground on the new building at its campus adjacent to the Northeast Florida Regional Airport.
