BAE Systems expands New Hampshire operations

Posted 5 February 2019 · Add Comment

BAE Systems is expanding operations into Manchester, New Hampshire, USA, as part of a series of strategic investments in its facilities and workforce to prepare for continuing and projected business growth.



The company has signed a new lease for an approximately 200,000-square-foot campus located at 3000 Goffs Falls Road 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 state-of-the-art 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 has a long and rich history in New Hampshire,” said Ray Brousseau, vice president and deputy general manager at BAE Systems’ Electronic Systems sector. “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.”

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.

Outside of New England, the company’s Electronic Systems sector continues to expand its operations in Austin, Texas and Huntsville, Alabama. In Austin, the company has hired more than 150 people in the last year and in Huntsville, the company is currently developing a $45.5 million state-of-the-art facility that will create hundreds of jobs in the community over the coming years. The company is also expanding and investing in its Combat Vehicles manufacturing network in Aiken, South Carolina; Anniston, Alabama; Elgin, Oklahoma and York, Pennsylvania.
