SALT LAKE CITY -- Northrup Grumman expanded its Utah operations with a 52,000 square foot addition to its Navigation Systems Division.

The Deseret News of Salt Lake City says that the ceremony on Monday was attended by Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and members of the state's congressional delegation.

The plant builds and tests navigation systems and guidance system components. About 750 people work at the plant.

About 90 percent of the work done at the plant is for military purposes, including missiles and aircraft. Work is also done for commercial aircraft.

After the expansion, the plant is 275,000 square feet.

Herbert says the plant is proof that Utah's economy is recovering.
