Orbital ATK To Expand Its Chandler Footprint
Aerospace and defense company Orbital ATK is expanding its Chandler-based launch vehicles division.
Orbital will establish the 47-acre campus on Willis Road in Chandler's Price Corridor, a stone's throw from the company's existing campus, which employs nearly 1,600 people.
When completed in fall 2019, it will include two buildings totaling 617,000 square feet, with roughly a third of that space used for manufacturing.
Earlier this month, Orbital's launch division announced plans to add a heavy lifting rocket akin to SpaceX's Falcon Heavy to its stable of missiles, test vehicles and rockets.
