One of the nation’s leading space and defense firms has expanded in Huntsville.
Aerojet Rocketdyne unveiled its new advanced manufacturing facility on Friday. Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey was in attendance to speak at the celebration.
“This is the home of the defense headquarters but this facility will do work primarily for defense but we also do some of the work for RS25 booster engine that will be for the space launch system in support of NASA," said Eileen Drake, Aeroject’s CEO.
