ELTA to open cyber center in Maryland
Governor Larry Hogan has announced that ELTA North America, a global leader in the design, manufacture, and support of innovative electronic systems, has selected Maryland for its new Cyber Innovation Center.
The announcement follows the May 2017 grand opening of ELTA’s new headquarters in Annapolis Junction, when the company upgraded from a 7,500-square-foot facility to a 21,500-square-foot-facility and announced plans to add as many as 50 new jobs. ELTA North America’s decision to locate the Cyber Innovation Center in Maryland is the direct result of negotiations between Governor Hogan and company leadership, including a site visit to ELTA’s Israeli headquarters, during the governor’s economic development and trade mission to Israel in September 2016.
“ELTA is a world-class defense company and we are proud that they have chosen to expand their operations and continue to manufacture the components for their cutting-edge defense systems here in Maryland,” said Governor Hogan.
“We are pleased to establish our footprint for cyber in Maryland,” said Eric Womble, CEO and president of ELTA North America. “We look forward to tapping into the state’s strong cybersecurity market and well-trained workforce.”
