Science and Engineering Services LLC said Tuesday that it expects to add 450 jobs in Huntsville over the next five years. 

The new jobs will be part of a nearly $70 million expansion of its Alabama manufacturing operations.

The announcement was made at the Farnborough International Air Show in London, after a meeting with Governor Robert Bentley, SES company officials, Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield, Huntsville leaders and local economic development team members.

“The announcement of SES is great news for Huntsville and the entire state,” Governor Robert Bentley said in a statement. “We have positioned ourselves to be a leader in aerospace and aviation, and the SES expansion is further proof of that success. I appreciate the leaders at Science and Engineering Services LLC for the investment in Alabama, and I look forward to the company’s continued success in Huntsville.”

SES makes science, engineering, and weapon systems for the Department of Defense and Homeland Security.
