Global security firm Northrop Grumman has established a permanent presence in Australia with a formal launch ceremony for its Australian subsidiary.

The ceremony officially launching Northrop Grumman Australia was held at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, the nation's capital, and was attended by Australian Minister for Defense David Johnston.

"I'm very proud of the capability we now have here in Australia to support the Australian Defense Force and Australian national community," said Ian Irving, chief executive for Northrop Grumman Australia. "We're working hard on establishing Northrop Grumman in Australia, and we look forward to being able to support the Australian government even more into the future. Our firm objective is to add to the national security of Australia in the region and that our contribution will provide an enduring capability for the country."

Northrop Grumman, which has conducted business with and in Australia for more than 20 years, has expanded its local presence over the past two years, acquiring M5 Network Security and QDS, now Northrop Grumman Integrated Defense Services. It has facilities up and down the east coast of Australia, providing capabilities that range from secure communications to aircraft support and sustainment.

The number of Northrop Grumman employees in the country is more than 400.

"Northrop Grumman is committed to work with Australia to provide innovative solutions to its defense and national security needs now and into the future," said Wes Bush, Northrop Grumman chairman, chief executive officer and president. "Northrop Grumman also sees an opportunity to develop a regional hub for the Indo-Pacific region in Australia, which will enable our presence to grow and will create additional business opportunities for local Australian industry."
