Teledyne Brown Engineering is expanding in Huntsville again. The engineering and advanced manufacturing solutions company announced a 55,000-square-foot expansion, which will be added to its current 200,000-square-foot campus.
This latest development — its third expansion in three years — will include a 15,000-square-foot expansion of an existing high bay building and a new, standalone 40,000-square-foot high bay facility. Each addition will be fully equipped, including a large capacity gantry machine, enhancing the company’s manufacturing and fabrication capabilities.
In addition to the facilities, the company expects to increase its workforce by up to 100 employees over the next two years.
“The investments we are making are a strong indicator of our consistent and continued growth,” said Jan Hess, president of Teledyne Brown Engineering. “We are fortunate that our large campus allows for expansion and are thrilled that these enhancements will enable us to deliver increased program capability and capacity to our customers.”
Teledyne Brown Engineering performs several programs for the Department of Defense, Department of Energy and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The company has an extensive list of certifications, including the AS9100D/ISO9001:2015, Nadcap ASME Section III (Nuclear) and Section VIII Quality Certifications. In addition, the company can perform up to Level III nondestructive testing (NDT).
Earlier this year, the company has been selected for a number of projects and contracts.
In mid-May, Teledyne Brown Engineering was on a team selected for a NASA Astrophysics Explorer Mission of Opportunity Phase A study. This study calls on TBE to provide system engineering support and hardware development for the team’s proposed LargE Area burst Polarimeter (LEAP), which would be mounted on the International Space Station to study the energetic jets launched in gamma-ray bursts.
In early May, the company, along with its partners, were awarded a $1.8 million contract to assemble Energetic Charged Particle (ECP) – Lite, sensors for the United States Air Force, which will be flown on National Security Space assets and possibly other international missions to help understand impacts of radiation and other space weather effects.
And in April, the company was awarded a contract with a $40 million ceiling for production of Automated Radioxenon Concentrator and Spectrometer (ARCS) production units for the U.S. Air Force. These units provide multiple radioxenon sampler systems for nuclear test monitoring requirements of the U.S. Atomic Energy Detection System network.
