PHOENIX — The new administrative and engineering building in Gilbert that will house global aerospace and defense giant Northrop Grumman has been completed, according to a press release on Thursday.

Near McQueen and Elliot roads, the more than 120,000-square-foot, two-story building expands Northrop Grumman’s multi-building satellite manufacturing campus, which was already one of the largest of its kind in the nation.

Northrop Grumman, which has had a presence in Gilbert since the early 1990’s, produces satellites for NASA, the U.S. Department of Defense and commercial customers at the facility.

The building features 15-foot floor-to-floor elevations with state-of-the-art workspaces and common areas, according to the release.

Groundbreaking for the new building took place in January of 2020.

The expansion, which also includes a 100,000-square-foot addition to its existing satellite manufacturing facility, allows the company to double the current production capacity, according to a press release announcing the groundbreaking.

The company in November 2019 opened a neighboring 633,000-square-foot campus in Chandler on Price Road south of the Loop 202 Santan Freeway which is home to Northrop Grumman’s launch vehicles business.

Northrop Grumman employs 97,000 people in the United States and around the world, ranking No. 96 in the Fortune 500 in 2020 and moving up 12 spots from the previous year.
