INDIANAPOLIS (March 9, 2015) – Governor Mike Pence joined executives from Raytheon (NYSE: RTN), a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, security and civil markets, to announce the company’s plans to expand its operations here, creating 250 new jobs over the next few years.
“Raytheon’s announcement today places the development of key national security technology squarely in Indiana,” said Pence. “We’re currently witnessing major players in the global defense and aerospace sectors growing in the state. Raytheon’s leadership told us last summer that their Indiana operations were strong. Now it’s clear that this team of Hoosiers will only be growing stronger, delivering critical results for our nation’s military, security and intelligence interests.”
Representing a twenty-five percent increase in employees at its Indianapolis facility, this is Raytheon’s largest workforce expansion since the company took over the site in 1998. Work at the historic facility, which was formerly the Indianapolis Naval Ordnance plant, will focus on areas of depot support, including modernizing and upgrading the capabilities of military platforms, systems engineering and systems installation. The facility, which already employs 1,000 Hoosiers, also develops leading-edge soldier-worn computers and provides weapons system sustainment, supply chain management and systems engineering among other services to commercial and military customers.
