Raytheon looks to add up to 2,000 positions over the next five years through an expansion of the defense company’s missile systems business headquarters in Tucson, Arizona.
Raytheon said Friday it will hire workers at all skill levels to serve in engineering and higher-wage technical roles.
Taylor Lawrence, president of Raytheon’s missile systems unit, said that several Arizona-based organizations will help the company meet workforce and infrastructure needs to address demand from customers.
Raytheon will partner with Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, the Arizona Commerce Authority, Pima County, City of Tucson, Sun Corridor Inc., Tucson Electric Power and the Tucson Airport Authority under the expansion initiative.
The company expects the project to bring billions of dollars of economic impact for the state over the next decade.
