ArmorWorks, a defense and security company, signed a 70,000-square-foot lease in Chandler at the recently completed Lotus Project, located near the northwest corner of Kyrene Road and Loop 202. The company will consolidate its headquarters—including engineering; research and development; and administrative departments, in addition to certain manufacturing operations—in the new facility, according to a news release from the city.

The company designs and manufactures various types of protective technologies and was founded more than 20 years ago, according to the city. The expansion will increase their employee count from 125 to 210.

"The City of Chandler is thrilled that ArmorWorks chose to expand in West Chandler, our second-largest employment corridor,” Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke said in the release. “We would also like to thank Conor Commercial and all of the developers that continue to drive economic growth in Chandler.”

The new facility will open in phases, with operations starting in March 2020, according to the city.
