Company Plans To Grow In The Southeast U.S.
Aerojet said Thursday that over the next few months it will
expand its presence in the Huntsville community by hiring 25 local
engineers. This growth will allow Aerojet to provide collaborative
engineering expertise, program management support and business
development outreach to our government and prime customers located
in the Huntsville area and across the Southeastern United
"Huntsville is an important location for our DoD, NASA and
industry customers," said Scott Seymour, Aerojet president and
GenCorp president & CEO. "Growing Aerojet's technical
capabilities in Huntsville will allow us to better serve our
customers and expand Aerojet's business base."
The additional Aerojet engineers will include technical
expertise in solid, liquid and gel propulsion, warheads, specialty
metals and fire suppression systems. They will provide
face-to-face, hands-on technical interaction with all of our
Huntsville customers for current and future programs. They also
will serve as an integral link to the breadth of technical and
programmatic capabilities across Aerojet.
The purpose of Aerojet's expanded presence in Huntsville is to
provide a better customer interface for all business development
and engineering activities. This includes not only Aerojet's DoD
and NASA customers, but our prime contractors, supplier partners,
local and regional universities, professional societies and
community development organizations as well. The expansion also
will enable Aerojet to examine new product opportunities related to
the company's current business base.
Aerojet is planning a ribbon-cutting ceremony during the first
few months of 2011. Job announcements will be forthcoming and the
hiring process will commence around the first of the year. The
local lead for Aerojet will continue to be Claude Baldwin, director
of Operations for Aerojet's Huntsville Office.
