- 330,000-square-foot expansion
- 1,200 employees in Hamilton by 2021
In 2019, L3 Harris, one of the world’s leading aerospace and defence firms, broke ground on their brand new, state-of-the-art Canadian headquarters.
This investment includes 330,000 square feet of research and development, engineering, assembly and office space. By 2021—when they plan to be fully moved in—L3Harris will be home to more than 1,200 employees in Hamilton.
Founded in the West End of Hamilton in 1957 as a camera stabilization system provider, L3Harris (formally known as L3Wescam), has expanded to become a world leader in electro-optical and infrared imaging technologies and system solutions. It has over 4,700 fielded systems and solutions operational across more than 80 countries, and its technologies can be found on more than 200 different platforms across the air, land and maritime domains.
