CLINTON, Tenn., Feb. 28, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) today celebrated the grand opening of its newly consolidated Remotec, Inc. robotics facility at 353 JD Yarnell Parkway in the Eagle Bend Industrial Park.
"What a great way to start out a new year," said Mack Barber, president of Remotec, part of Northrop Grumman's Electronic Systems sector. "We are very proud of our new headquarters, engineering and manufacturing facility here in Anderson County. It's bigger and better and reflects the direction we're going as a company."
The new 75,000 square foot engineering, manufacturing and administrative office building consolidates what had been four separate, less-modern facilities to enable smoother operations and communication flow between business and production components.
"The move opens doors for more efficient future operations, new products and growth in our hazardous-duty robotics business," Barber added.
Local elected officials and business and civic leaders were present for the ceremony.
Remotec is a world leader in providing mobile robot systems for use in hazardous duty operations by military organizations, law enforcement agencies, nuclear facilities and research laboratories. The robotic technology developed and deployed by Remotec is fast becoming the standard for hazardous-duty robots.
