USA: Raytheon Realigns Two Business HQ Locations
Raytheon Company yesterday announced that two of its four businesses will have new headquarters locations. The decisions stem from the company consolidation announced March 25, 2013, intended to streamline operations, increase productivity and achieve stronger alignment with its customers’ priorities.
Raytheon’s newly formed Intelligence, Information and Services (IIS) business will establish its headquarters at the company’s existing Dulles, Va., hub operations in Sterling, Va. IIS provides a full range of ISR, navigation, weather, cybersecurity, training, logistics, mission support and engineering solutions for the intelligence community, government and commercial customers.
Raytheon’s Space and Airborne Systems (SAS) business headquarters will transition from El Segundo, Calif., to McKinney, Texas, where the company already has a major business presence. Raytheon will maintain business operations in California, as well as in other states. SAS builds radars and other sensors for aircraft, spacecraft and ships; provides communications and electronic warfare solutions; and performs research in areas ranging from linguistics to quantum computing.
The headquarters of Raytheon’s Integrated Defense Systems and Missile Systems businesses remain in Tewksbury, Mass., and Tucson, Ariz., respectively.
