BAE Systems is to expand its New Hampshire’s operations with the latest in a series of strategic investments in its facilities and workforce to prepare for continuing and projected business growth.

The Company has agreed a lease for a 200,000-square-foot campus that will allow for significant expansion in the Granite State. The new space will add to the company’s large New Hampshire presence, which includes facilities in Hudson and Nashua and more than 6,000 people at multiple facilities across the state.

When the new Manchester facility is fully staffed, the campus will house up to 800 employees primarily focused on supporting the company’s electronic warfare programs.

BAE Systems’ Electronic Systems sector, headquartered in Nashua, actively recruits a diverse pool of workers, and hired nearly 2,000 people in 2018. Its electronic warfare business provides a massive impact on the communities where it operates – providing more than $450 million in salaries and benefits to more than 3,100 employees in 16 states, and $161 million in subcontracts to more than 740 suppliers in 46 states in 2018.

Over the past several years, the sector has invested more than $100 million to expand manufacturing capacity to meet increasing production rates of the company’s top programs and deliver on its commitments to its customers – with a strong focus on its electronic warfare business. That investment, along with the new Manchester expansion, will enable the company to enhance manufacturing efficiency, improve overall cycle time, and build additional capabilities for future growth.

Ray Brousseau, Vice President and Deputy General Manager at BAE Systems’ Electronic Systems sector, said: “BAE Systems has a long and rich history in New Hampshire. Our investment in the new Manchester campus will enable us to tap into the talented local workforce to expand our capacity and improve our ability to deliver high-quality products to the warfighter.”
