BAE Systems has agreed to take on a $45.5 million project to expand its operations in the state of Alabama. The company said the multi-phase growth plan calls for the immediate expansion of its existing offices in Huntsville and develop a manufacturing and office space facility in the city’s Cummings Research Park.
Work at the facility will consist of new programs and existing business, including the design, development, and manufacturing of precision munitions and aircraft survivability technology. BAE Systems (Outdoor Exhibit 11) is working with a Huntsville developer to build its new 83,000-square-foot facility, plans for which include engineering development space, manufacturing space, and a Department of Defense lab. BAE expects construction of the new building to start this year and conclude in 2019.
