Aerojet Rocketdyne has shifted production of large solid rocket motors to Camden, Arkansas from its heritage headquarters site in Sacramento, California. Camden isn’t the most likely place to locate a hub of aerospace innovation, but that is what the company in effect has done. Aerojet has also built new facilities at Camden to support missile defense interceptors, making the small (population: 11,000) city one of the largest rocket and missile propulsion complexes in the world. I have written a piece for Forbes here explaining why the company has consolidated so many of its product lines in Arkansas.
