BAE Systems is expanding its strong New Hampshire presence with a new facility in Manchester. With the the signing of a lease for an approximate 200,000 ft.2 campus at 3000 Goffs Falls Rd., BAE is growing its capabilities for electronic-warfare (EW) systems and technology. The company already has a large presence in New Hampshire, and more than 6,000 employees at multiple facilities across the state (including locations in Hudson and Nashua). The new Manchester facility is expected to house as many as 800 employees working on EW.
“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.”
The company’s Electronic Systems sector is headquartered in Nashua and hired almost 2,000 people in 2018. It provided $161 million in subcontracts to more than 740 suppliers in 46 states in 2018, having a considerable economic impact on almost the entire U.S.
BAE Systems has a large EW business throughout the country, with more than 3,100 employees in 16 states representing more than $450 million in salaries and benefits.
