After a lengthy search, Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) has settled on the location in suburban Northern Virginia to serve as the firm’s new headquarters. The contracting giant will move from Southern California over the next year.
“As we thought about our corporate office and our ability to serve our customer, it became very clear we needed to be here,“ NGC CEO Wes Bush told The Washington Post two months ago when the firm announced plans to move to the Old Dominion. “This is where our customer base is headquartered. This is where the key decisions are made that influence the things we care the most about.“
Bush found the promise of economic incentives from Virginia enticing.
“Virginia stacked up very well. We are down to a small number of sites in the Falls Church and Arlington area,“ Bush said. “Those sites have the proximity we were looking for; all are within the Beltway. They meet our economic objectives as well as our economic incentive structure from the state and local governments.“
