U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta, R-N.H., will visit the Cobham facility in Exeter Monday.
Guinta will tour the facility, talk with managers, speak to workers and take their questions. He will arrive at 1 p.m.
The visit is part of Guinta's “Getting Granite Staters Back to Work” jobs initiative promotion.
Cobham, which makes radar parts for America's jet of the future, is currently expanding its Exeter facilities to make way for more than 100 new jobs.
The company is more than doubling the size of its manufacturing plant on Continental Drive. The plant currently employs about 225 people; the expansion would add at least 130 more, according to company officials.
Cobham, based in England, makes radar parts for U.S. submarines, destroyers, and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter – the jet of the future for the U.S. and other partner countries. Cobham also makes radar parts for Airbus and Boeing commercial planes. The majority of the work done in Exeter is military-related.
Cobham is also planning on expanding its presence on Industrial Drive, where about 125 employees work. That expansion would require 80 more employees, Moore has previously said. An exact timeframe has not been set.
The Cobham expansion will help make up for gunmaker Sig Sauer's recent decision to move its headquarters from Exeter to the Pease Tradeport in Newington.
