Northrop Grumman breaks ground on new building

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Northrop Grumman broke ground Monday morning on a new multi-purpose building in Lake Charles.

The expansion is part of the company's continued growth at Chennault Industrial Airport.

Last fall, a $3.8 billion nine year contract between the Federal government and Northrop Grumman was announced.

Chennault is assisting with the cost of the building.
