FLIR Systems said this week it will open a new headquarters in Arlington, VA.

"Located in Pentagon Row at 1201 South Joyce Street in Arlington, the office will house 65 employees and serve as a conference center and gathering space to support the company’s largest customer, the United States Government, as well as investors and regulators located on the East Coast of the U.S.," FLIR said.

The 30,000-square-foot facility will be the home office for FLIR's government and defense business unit as well as for members of the senior executive team, including FLIR's chief executive and chief financial officer.

"FLIR employees currently located at the company’s Crystal City, Virginia facility will move to the new Arlington headquarters," the company said. "FLIR Systems remains incorporated in the state of Oregon and the company plans to begin a renovation project for its Wilsonville, Oregon headquarters in the second quarter of 2019."

FLIR last month said it has agreed to purchase Endeavor Robotics, the former iRobot defense business that was spun off in 2016.
