Northrop Grumman moved nearly 350 employees into the energy-efficient building
from nearby facilities in Fairborn and Kettering. The consolidation is
expected to yield operational savings and greater collaboration in support of
the U.S. Air Force, the company's primary customer supported by local
operations.

"Consolidation into a single building positions us to better support our
customer at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base," said Jay Jabour, Northrop
Grumman's corporate lead executive for the Dayton, Ohio, region. "This
ribbon-cutting represents Northrop Grumman's commitment to the local community
and to the Air Force."

The Beavercreek facility is at 4065 Colonel Glenn Highway, adjacent to
Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Area B. The base is home to several aircraft
that Northrop Grumman has produced, including the B-2 stealth bomber and the
Global Hawk unmanned aircraft system.
