Northrop expands Arizona facility

17th December 2018 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Northrop Grumman’s Innovation Systems in Mesa, Arizona, has completed the expansion of its Bushmaster medium calibre cannon production facility.

The new 36,000sq ft facility doubles the company’s current production capability and will accommodate warehouse and manufacturing operations on a single site.

The company’s Mesa-based operation produces the Bushmaster family of medium calibre cannons that provide the US military and its allies with advance weapons for air, land and sea combat platforms.

Lisa Brown, VP, site operations, Northrop Grumman, said: ‘This expansion will help us meet today’s surging demand for our cannons while also addressing future growth requirements as US and allied militaries are increasing their current defence capabilities in response to worldwide threats.’
