Recently L3Harris has expanded operations in Canada with a new $110 million (USD) state-of-the-art facility in Waterdown, Ontario. The new 330,000-square-foote facility is designed to create cross-functional efficiencies across research and development, engineering, assembly, service and office space to support the growing demand for the WESCAM MX-Series electro-optical and infrared imaging technologies.

The investment in the new facility represents L3Harris’ commitment to its global customers and partners, and employees thoughout the region. The purpose-built facility has been designed to maximize efficiency and sustainability – increasing overall manufacturing, and increases capacity for larger program execution and improved lead times.

“This larger and leaner factory enables us to optimize production flow, enhancing L3Harris’ ability to meet our customers’ needs quicker, while increasing capacity for larger program execution and future growth,” said Sean Stackley, President, Integrated Mission Systems, L3Harris.

L3Harris’ WESCAM MX systems are active in over 80 countries. Operating across air, land and maritime domains, these intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance and targeting systems support more than 200 different platforms.
