Congresswoman Hahn Statement on Closure of Northrop Grumman Facility in Carson

Mar 4, 2013

WASHINGTON, DC-  Today, Congresswoman Hahn released the following statement on Northrop Grumman’s recently announced plan to close its Dominguez Hills Information Systems sector facility in Carson, CA:  

“I was saddened to hear that Northrop Grumman will be closing its Dominguez Hills facility and moving its 768 jobs out of our community. These are good paying, high skill jobs, and while I am hopeful many of them will stay in our region, this is unmistakably bad news. As we wind down a decade at war, we need to help transition our defense industry towards civilian applications—harness their innovation for peacetime uses and retain jobs.”
