Terran Orbital to Significantly Expand Manufacturing Capability in Irvine, California
Leading small satellite provider to expand production by leasing a new manufacturing facility in Irvine
BOCA RATON, Fla., February 15, 2022 – Terran Orbital Corporation (“Terran Orbital,” or the “Company”), a leading vertically integrated provider of end-to-end satellite solutions, signed a 10-year lease for a 60,000 square-foot commercial facility in Irvine, California. The location of the facility is adjacent to the Company’s existing facility.
“Terran Orbital continues to expand our status as an industry leader by growing our portfolio of satellite production and assembly facilities,” said Terran Orbital Co-Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Marc Bell. “This is another in a long line of developments to maintain our leadership as a top small satellite manufacturer in the country.”
The new facility will focus on pure assembly and production. The facility will house staff and equipment beginning later this year.
“This latest expansion amplifies our ability to produce satellites at scale,” said William Beck, Terran Orbital Vice President of Infrastructure. “We look forward to helping produce the thousands of satellites expected to launch into orbit over the next 10 years.”
In September 2021, Terran Orbital announced it planned to build what the Company believes will be one of the largest satellite manufacturing complexes in the world in Brevard County, Florida. Once completed, it is expected that the 660,000 square-foot facility will create approximately 2,100 new jobs on Florida’s Space Coast.
Terran Orbital has previously announced it entered into a business combination agreement with Tailwind Two Acquisition Corp. (NYSE: TWNT), (“Tailwind Two”), a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), pursuant to which Terran Orbital will combine with Tailwind Two.
