KATOWICE, Poland, Sept. 7, 2023 — L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) is expanding its footprint in Europe by creating an advanced electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) engineering and manufacturing facility in Poland. The site is expected to be operational early in 2024.
The new 2,800-square meter facility will serve Poland, the wider European continent and a range of broader international customers with L3Harris’ advanced EO/IR sensor systems.
“Increasing our presence in Poland provides our European customers with dedicated teams equipped to meet their unique mission needs,” said Dave Johnson, Vice President, International, L3Harris. “Our advanced EO/IR manufacturing facility and increased business presence in the heart of Europe will enable our customers to remain operationally ready while we continue to strengthen our local partnerships.”
The facility will drive cross-functional efficiencies across research and development, engineering and assembly and employ fully trained local technicians to provide advanced repair services and product support.
The investment builds upon L3Harris’ long history of providing field-proven technologies to customers in Poland and aims to employ more than 30 full-time, highly skilled staff in manufacturing, engineering, finance and operations.
The company’s European presence includes offices in Warsaw and significant manufacturing across Europe. In June 2023, L3Harris opened a 5,500-square-meter manufacturing and product support center in Bologna, Italy.
L3Harris has been supporting the Polish Armed Forces for decades and has plans to expand its presence in the coming years. From a tactical communications perspective, the company has been delivering Falcon® radios since the mid-1990s to Poland’s special forces, land forces and national guard. L3Harris has delivered more than 7,000 radio systems to Poland and continues to hire in-country employees and has teamed with industry partners including PGZ.
