ITT Corp. has announced plans to build a new defense avionics repair and testing facility in Crane, Ind., that will create more than 220 new jobs within the next three to six years.
The New Jersey-based company plans to invest more than $10 million to develop the 15,000-s.f. regional electronics repair and evaluation hub at the Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center, a 100-square-mile Department of Defense weapons research and development center located approximately 100 miles southwest of Indianapolis.
ITT will begin hiring engineers, technical support staff and managers in April 2009 to staff the new facility. Once operational in August 2009, the facility will provide services related to the evaluation and component repair of electronic warfare equipment for the U.S. Department of Defense.
