York expands manufacturing with new ‘mega’ plant

Paris, 19 May 2021. – York Space Systems wants to open a new “mega” manufacturing facility at its headquarters in Denver, to meet the growing demand from government and commercial customers, the company said.

York’s Manufacturing Technology Center will be the hub of the company’s next phase to expand its production capacity by four times, the space mission solution provider said.

York currently manufactures up to 20 spacecraft simultaneously, it said. The new mega-facility will enable mission launches “as fast as 30 days after contract award”. 

The new facility will support the manufacture of both the S- and LX-Class spacecraft platforms, York said, providing mission capabilities including ISR, remote proximity operations, weather, global communications, and commercial earth observation.
