SAAB - Purdue Research Park
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Global defense and security company Saab announced plans Wednesday (May 8) to locate a new U.S. manufacturing operation in Indiana. The facility, located at Discovery Park District Aerospace on the west side of the Purdue University campus, will support production of the U.S. Air Force's next-generation T-X jet trainer and create up to 300 new jobs, with hiring starting in 2020.
The expansion is a fundamental part of the company's strategy to grow its U.S. industrial and technology base. Saab also will collaborate with Purdue University to expand Saab's U.S.-based research and development within possible areas such as sensor systems, artificial intelligence and autonomous systems.
