Raytheon leases space for 600 workers at Tewksbury's former Wang Labs

Waltham-based defense contractor Raytheon Co. is leasing 134,000 square feet of office space at the former Wang Laboratories headquarters in Tewksbury and plans to house 600 employees at the facility. The new office will span two floors at the Center at Innovation Drive, and Raytheon has expansion rights to create a 135,000-square-foot office across one floor, said Peter Gottlieb, senior vice president at Rubenstein Partners, which owns the building. While it's unclear what Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) plans to use the offices for, its Integrated Defense Systems business line is headquartered in Tewksbury and contracts with both the U.S. Department of Defense and more than 50 international customers, according to the company’s most recent annual report.
