ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla., April 21 (UPI) -- Northrop Grumman’s new Aircraft Integration Center of Excellence has been dedicated in Florida, the company announced.

The center, within a 368,000-square-foot production facility, was dedicated late last week and is the company’s second in the United States.

"Today's (Thursday’s) dedication signifies our continued commitment to our service men and women, to our employees in St. Augustine and to the state of Florida," said Tom Vice, Northrop Grumman’s corporate vice president and president of Aerospace Systems. "The talented workforce at this center of excellence, coupled with a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, will continue to benefit our customers, our company and the community."

Northrop said it had also broken ground for a new building at its campus, which is close to the Northeast Florida Regional Airport. The new building when completed next year will provide additional hangar space and program management offices.

Northrop has operated a facility in St. Augustine since 1980. It is the home of E-2D Advanced Hawkeye production as well as for work on EA-6B Prowlers, C-2A Greyhounds, A-6 Intruders, F-14 Tomcats and other military aircraft.
