Raytheon Missile Systems Brings 300 Jobs to Redstone Arsenal, Alabama

Raytheon Missile Systems will build a missile production site in Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, creating 300 jobs. The 70,000-square-foot facility will create products for the U.S. Navy, and celebrate a groundbreaking later this year.

"Raytheon's SM-3 is the centerpiece of the nation's new missile defense strategy, and SM-6 will give the U.S. Navy a new, much-needed weapon system," said Dr. Taylor W. Lawrence, Raytheon Missile Systems president. "Together with Alabama, Raytheon will use this factory to deliver even more capability to the Missile Defense Agency and U.S. Navy customers."

The company already has a presence in Alabama, and employs approximately 600 people in Huntsville.
