Sargent Adds 70,000 S.F. to Marana, Arizona Campus
"Our decision to expand in the greater Tucson region, specifically Marana, was driven by a need to retain a strategic location with a culturally diverse employment base," said Scott Still, Sargent president. "Being close to California and Mexico allows us access to both key aerospace suppliers and our existing manufacturing plants via a well-established transportation network. Southern Arizona provides long-term value while maximizing productivity and supporting our growth plans."
Sargent will open an engineering design and qualification lab center of excellence in its new campus, improve operations, and use eco-friendly building products. The growth will accommodate expansion of its work on the VIRGINIA class submarine, new Boeing 787 and Airbus A350 aircraft, and Lockheed Martin's F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
The company expects to add jobs in aerospace design, manufacturing, test engineering, program management, and highly-skilled manufacturing.
