Northrop Grumman chooses Falls Church location

Fortune 100 company Northrop Grumman announced earlier this year they were moving their Los Angeles headquarters to northern Virginia. The leading global security company that will create 300 new jobs in the Commonwealth, has now announced they will settle in Falls Church. In response to that information, Governor Bob McDonnell issued the following statement:
“In April, we were pleased to announce that Northrop Grumman, a Fortune 100 company, was moving its corporate headquarters to Virginia.

Today the company has announced that the headquarters will be located in Falls Church. This is great news for Falls Church, Fairfax County, all of Northern Virginia and our entire Commonwealth. Northrop Grumman’s move to Virginia will mean 300 new, high-paying jobs for our citizens and it will have a positive impact across our economy.

Our Administration is committed to taking every step necessary to bring much needed new jobs and economic development to the Commonwealth, and we are seeing positive results from this focus.

Since February, Virginia has added 71,500 jobs, the third-highest amount in the country. Today we again welcome Northrop Grumman to the Commonwealth, and we look forward to many more job-creation announcements in the months and years ahead.”
