GILBERT, Ariz. (AP) - An aerospace and defense company plans to expand its engineering operations in the Phoenix suburb of Gilbert.

Orbital ATK says it’ll add 60,000 square feet to a site that includes a facility for manufacturing space satellites.

The company says the project announced Friday will create a projected 155 full-time jobs over five years. The company now has 261 workers at the site.

Orbital ATK also has facilities in the adjacent cities of Chandler and Mesa. The company is headquartered in Dulles, Virginia.
