FREMONT, CA: 3D printer engineering and manufacturing company Made In Space has decided to move its headquarters from Mountain View, California to Jacksonville, Florida. The company was founded in 2010 in Mountain View and established its presence in Jacksonville in 2015. Made In Space struck up a partnership with Space Florida in 2017, which has been providing finance to the commercial space startup to expand operations in Florida.
"With this move, they are investing nearly $3 million," said Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. “Their footprint has increased from a two-room facility to this 19,000 square foot facility.” The company's Jacksonville campus features facilities for manufacturing, integrating, testing, and controlling spacecraft as well as in-space manufacturing equipment. It also houses the company's administrative, engineering, operations, and production teams for major programs under one roof.
"Relocating our headquarters to Jacksonville is a strategic step to position the company for long-term growth," said Andrew Rush, Made In Space President and CEO." By expanding our presence in Florida, we can leverage a skilled aerospace workforce, large scale infrastructure to support our growth, and key strategic partners like Space Florida that will accelerate our momentum as we continue to develop world-class space technology."
The company will continue to maintain its presence in Silicon Valley to support additional technology programs and strategic relationships with industry partners. Made In Space is yet to determine how many jobs it will move from California to Florida. Employees affected by this move will be offered roles in positions on the Florida campus.
“Made In Space, through its innovative in-space manufacturing segment and technology which improves life on earth and in space, is forging the way toward a bright new future,” said Space Florida President and CEO Frank DiBello. “We are pleased to have established a long-standing relationship with Made In Space and are proud to welcome the company to Jacksonville on Florida’s First Coast. Space Florida looks forward to Made In Space’s continued growth and success, expanding Florida’s thriving aerospace economic footprint.”
