In October 2011 the company moved its corporate headquarters from Eden Prairie to Arlington, Va. Alliant made the move to be closer to its major customer, the U.S. Department of Defense.

The company said then that the move would only affect about a dozen of its senior management. The company has since announced several layoffs to its global workforce, which was approximately 15,000 in March of 2011 and is currently about 14,000. Approximately 2,400 of Alliant’s employees are still in Minnesota.
