Welcome to Northrop Grumman

Welcome Mat

Welcome to Anne Arundel County, Maryland, and congratulations on your new job at Northrup Grumman. 

You may be joining about 500 other engineering, electrical design and technical professionals relocating to Maryland this year, including many from other Northrup Grumman divisions in Colorado and California that are being consolidated into the new Space and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Systems Division. 

Or, if Northrop Grumman Corporation’s KC-30 Tanker aircraft is selected by the U.S. Air Force, you may fill one of the additional 2,800 jobs that will generate economic activity exceeding $225 million annually in Maryland.

In fact, you could be relocating to Northrop Grumman’s main facility in Linthicum Heights or the Information Assurance (IA) team’s new headquarters in Millersville.  Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems is one of Maryland’s largest employers and most of the jobs are located right here in Anne Arundel County.  

If your Northrop Grumman job brings you to this area in 2008, you will be in the first wave of 22,000 new jobs near Fort Meade resulting from the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC).  As one of the early arrivals, you will be able to snap up a home while the market is favorable to buyers and possibly profit from the tightening demand as thousands more relocate to the area between now and 2011.

Highway sign - Copyright 2007 MWODAIf you have never lived on the East Coast, you can look forward to travelling I-95 through fifteen states, exploring small towns and major cities from Maine to Florida, including Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Richmond, Savannah, and Miami.  

When the traffic gods are smiling, you’ll be just two hours from the Atlantic Ocean at Ocean City, Maryland, and Rehobeth Beach, Delaware; major amusement parks such as Six Flags in Maryland, Hershey Park in Pennsylvania and Kings Dominion in Virginia; and historical cities such as Williamsburg, Virginia, and Annapolis, Maryland.

Anne Arundel County residents live less than an hour from D.C., Baltimore and Annapolis – they can literally spend a day sailing on the Chesapeake Bay near Annapolis in the morning, cheering for the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards in the afternoon, and attending a concert at the Kennedy Center in the evening. 

If your job requires travel or you enjoy travelling for vacations, you will love the convenience to BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport, less than a half hour from Northrop Grumman and anywhere in Anne Arundel County.  You can pick up the MARC train at BWI, as well, if you prefer rail travel to D.C., Baltimore, New York City and beyond.
