Northrop Grumman moved nearly 350 employees into the energy-efficient building from nearby facilities in Fairborn and Kettering.

"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.
