Ole Glory - Defense Contractors in Aurora CO

By

Buckley Air Force Base is located in Aurora CO, and nearby, there are a few defense contractors.    Many active military and accept positions at these contractors after their days with the military.    I have seen many of my clients go from active military to civilians at these companies and do quite well.   Both of these locations are within a couple of miles of the base.

Northrup Grumman has more than 550 facilities all over the United States and in more than 25 countries around the world, and employees approximately 90,000 employees.   they built a new building in 2006 and now have four buildings in Aurora.

Raytheon is another defense contractor with a huge location within a mile of Buckley Air Force Base.   The giant Waltham, Massachusetts-based defense contractor hired  200 positions in 2020 at the Aurora location, where Raytheon already employs 2,500 people.   Aurora is also where Raytheon has worked on the ground segments for major federal government weather satellite systems and for classified U.S. military and intelligence satellite systems it can’t discuss publicly.

Good morning Joan. Many who have served the flag in defense of our country move on to work for defense contractors. And you are available to help! Enjoy your day.

Those are two really great companies to have as anchors in your area and a great place for those from active military who are ready for the private sector.

Hi Joan... I always forget just how many defense industry companies you have in your area. And since they make so much money from the USA, I would hope they all fly the flag daily and proudly.

All these companies like to pick up military as employees as they most likely have some form of security clearance already. But a nice post about employment opportunities for those in your area.

Here on the Space Coast we live off the defense industry. These are names with a VERY big presence here (as you know we have had some movement (from Denver to Melbourne) for just that reason!

The DC area is another big location for defense contractors and this weekend I'll be headed south to Seymour Johnson AFB in Goldsboro , NC for my daughter's fiance's graduation.

Hi Joan- I too forgot that you have those huge companies near you.  And what a good fit to transition from the military to work for one of the Defense contractors.

It has been fun to watch the progression of all these posts.  Where some were finding it difficult to see flags to photograph, soon with focus they realized they were all about.  Thank you.  Mark
