BAE Systems said today it will expand its operations in Huntsville, AL.
"The company's multiphase growth plan includes the immediate expansion of its offices on Discovery Drive and the development of a new state-of-the-art manufacturing and office space facility in the Cummings Research Park," the company said. "Work at the site will consist of new programs and existing business, including the design, development, and manufacturing of precision munitions and aircraft survivability technology."
BAE said it plans to start construction this year and complete in 2019 the new, 83,000-square-foot facility, which will include space for engineering development, manufacturing and laboratories. The building's 20-acre lot will provide room for expansion, BAE said.
The contractor said it has more than 380 employees in Alabama, primarily at facilities in Anniston and Albertville.
