Dynetics, Inc. is celebrating its Alabama aerospace expansion by topping out with the contractor, BL Harbert International, on Friday, February 16 at noon. Team members from both companies will join the workers for an on-site lunch at the facility in Decatur. Leadership from BL Harbert International and Dynetics are scheduled to speak during the event.
“BL Harbert International is proud to be working alongside Dynetics again,” stated Johnny Garlington, BL Harbert International’s U.S. Group President. “The project team has achieved this milestone in a safe and efficient manner, and we look forward to a successful completion of the project this summer.”
The Test Stand is located within the Dynetics Aerospace Structures Complex in Decatur, AL. The facility will be used to build NASA’s SLS Universal Stage Adapter and perform structural testing for the Department of Defense, NASA and commercial clients.
This testing complex will be an addition to Dynetics facilities that support the development of launch systems in the Huntsville area, including NASA’s Space Launch System.
“Our new facility, here in Decatur will be a proud moment in our company’s history,” said David King, chief executive officer of Dynetics. “The nearly 90-foot tall facility will service both government and industry for qualification testing for large structures. We are glad that our construction partners, BL Harbert and BRPH, are designing and building our test stand and other facilities within the Aerospace Structures Complex. This test stand will help our customers who are preparing for short missions to low earth orbit or longer missions for exploring deep space.”
Designed by BRPH of Huntsville, the project broke ground in August 2017 and is scheduled to be completed this summer.
