BAE Systems continues to grow its in-person footprint with the addition of a new facility in the Northeast. They have opened a new engineering and production facility in Manchester, N.H. This is the latest step in a series of strategic facility investments across the country – including in Austin, TX; Cedar Rapids, IA; and Huntsville, AL.
MOre Space Means More Capacity
The 200,000-square-foot Manchester facility includes engineering design space, modern laboratories, and office space, providing the company with additional capacity to support the design and development of electronic warfare (EW) systems for the United States and its allies.
“Our new Manchester facility is critical to developing next-generation electromagnetic warfare systems and accelerating the delivery of capabilities to our customers,” said Ray Brousseau, vice president and deputy general manager at BAE Systems Electronic Systems. “This investment will support our workforce, improve operational efficiency and research capabilities, and enable us to continue delivering high-quality, trusted products.”
Hiring Needs Grow in the Northeast
BAE Systems’ advanced EW systems combine threat warning and self-protection capabilities to help pilots conduct their missions and return home safely. The growth of the company’s EW programs provides career growth opportunities for employees in Manchester. The company is hiring hundreds of skilled local candidates for critical roles to accommodate growth, including positions in engineering, finance, and project management.
“At BAE Systems, we offer challenging and rewarding work, great career opportunities, a welcoming culture, and an opportunity to take part in a mission that is critical to the safety and security of the U.S. military,” said Steve Copley, Manchester Project Director at BAE Systems. “Our Manchester facility provides an excellent, modern work environment for our employees, and deepens our roots in the Granite State.”
BAE Systems’ Electronic Systems sector focuses on researching, developing, implementing, and maintaining commercial, defense, and space electronics, with more than 6,000 employees in New Hampshire.
