Northrup Grumman Facility Dedicated by Governor
With the 368,000 SF aircraft production facility in St. Augustine still under construction, Governor Rick Scott spoke about jobs and especially the expanding employment base in Florida for Northrup Gumman, the defense and aerospace contractor. NG will hire 400 employees with an annual payroll of $24M to produce the E2-D Advanced Hawkeye airplane for the military. NG is also planning to hire 1,000 in Brevard County. Stuart Korfhage of The St. Augustine Record has the story.
