Redwire opens new Colorado facility to produce space hardware

Feb. 14, 2024
The new facility features an RF testing chamber and 26,000 square feet of high-bay manufacturing, integration, and testing floor space. 

Redwire Corporation has opened a new manufacturing facility in Longmont, Colorado. The company, which specializes in space infrastructure, hopes the new production plant will enable the design, manufacturing and testing of space-based antenna hardware and large-scale deployable structures for use in low-Earth orbit (LEO) and beyond. The new facility features an RF testing chamber and 26,000 square feet of high-bay manufacturing, integration, and testing floor space. 

In a recent quote, Redwire Space Systems President Adam Biskner said, “The new Longmont facility will enable Redwire to manufacture more RF Systems and provide our customers with new, expanded integration and testing capabilities. The Redwire team in Longmont has already delivered antennas supporting over 50 spacecraft for a national security constellation being developed, and thanks to the investment in this facility we are anticipating we will be able to triple that hardware throughput in just the next few years.
