Northrop Grumman Choosing VA For Headquarters

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) A spokesman for Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley says Northrop Grumman's CEO called the governor to say the company is looking to Virginia instead of Maryland to move its corporate office.

Rick Abbruzzese, an O'Malley spokesman, says Wes Bush called O'Malley late Monday afternoon to say the company is considering two locations in Virginia.

Abbruzzese says the company was impressed with what Maryland offered as incentives, but that it came down to a real estate decision to choose Virginia instead.

Abbruzzese also says that while Maryland wasn't chosen, it's still good news for the Mid-Atlantic region and could draw even more business to the area.
