Bridgeton Welcomes New Manufacturing Facility
The City of Bridgeton will soon be home to a $32 million engineering and light manufacturing facility. Leonardo DRS supplies and supports military forces, intelligence agencies, and defense contractors. Their new 172,000 square foot facility is expected to be complete early next year and will hold the business unit headquarters, housing leadership, management and a centralized back office functionality.
As part of the development, Leonardo DRS has also entered into a community engagement agreement with the Pattonville School District to further Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) initiatives in an extended learning opportunity program for high school students, as well as mentoring and job shadowing opportunities.
