Northrop Grumman marks opening of new facility in Cummings Research Park

HUNTSVILLE – Northrop Grumman Corporation has announced the opening of a new facility in Cummings Research Park, the second largest research park in the United States and the fourth largest in the world.

This facility, located at 110 Wynn Drive, will increase the company’s footprint in Huntsville and support work with the U.S. Air Force Ground Based Strategic Deterrent Program, the Nation’s next generation intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) system.

Northrop Grumman is adding approximately 500 jobs, with hiring well underway, as it continues strong growth in Alabama to support critical national security and civil space programs.

“I’m thrilled that Northrop Grumman will be building on its already large presence in Huntsville while also advancing a strategic national defense priority,” said Alabama Governor Kay Ivey. “By selecting Alabama’s ‘Rocket City,’ Northrop Grumman has picked the ideal location to carry out this important national security mission, and the company’s growth plans represent welcome news for Huntsville and for all of the state.”

“Huntsville is deeply rooted and invested in the security of our nation, and for decades has been at the forefront of safeguarding U.S. interests around the world,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce. “This makes Huntsville — with a NASA ecosystem known for rocket propulsion innovation and technology — a natural fit for Northrop Grumman’s expanding work on the nation’s next-generation ICBM system. For this reason, I know this mission will be a success.”

“Northrop Grumman is a valued partner in Huntsville’s preeminent role in the defense of our nation and armed forces across the globe,” said Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle. “They are another great example of our community’s ability to deliver great expertise in aerospace, rockets, propulsion and defense.”

Cummings Research Park will mark its 60th anniversary in 2022. Northrop Grumman’s investment into this part of CRP is yet another example of the revitalization taking place within CRP East, the oldest part of the Research Park. The 2016 CRP Master Plan indicated that this area of the Park was ripe for redevelopment and reinvestment, and this is already taking shape.

“In the short five years since the master plan, redevelopment and reinvestment like Northrop Grumman’s into the 110 Wynn Drive facility, as well as the new permanent campus of the Alabama School for Cyber Engineering and Technology, the MidCity amphitheater and more projects in the planning stages are reshaping CRP East into a more vibrant and active part of Cummings Research Park,” said Erin Koshut, the Park’s Executive Director.

Northrop Grumman has a growing workforce of more than 2,000 employees in Alabama, and currently supports numerous Department of Defense and NASA customer missions. It is one of the 10 largest employers in Huntsville/Madison County. The company also supports numerous STEM organizations including the Alabama School for Cyber Technology and Engineering, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, CyberPatriot, and Madison County Schools’ WiFi Business Program.
