Make Something Incredible

At Northrop Grumman, our manufacturing teams build products our warfighters and customers depend on for protecting lives. Our manufacturing engineers work to ensure what is being designed can actually be built, and at a cost our customers can afford.

Most technology theories are created many years before we actually see the technology become real . . . it is only when the ability to manufacture it, does technology become real. Northrop Grumman teams work together to deliver those new technologies and to sustain performance through early collaboration, using discriminating technology, agile production and performance excellence.
