On Monday, September 28, Florida Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez visited the new Redwire headquarters in Jacksonville, FL. Also in attendance was Space Florida CEO Frank DiBello and Redwire CTO Michael Snyder and EVP Nathan O’Konek. Their visit included a tour of the facilities, where the company manufactures, tests and controls spacecraft and in-space manufacturing equipment. The visit marked an opportunity to learn about the company’s latest innovations and in-space manufacturing capabilities.
Redwire selected Jacksonville to be the company’s new headquarters in September. Redwire has a significant presence in Florida. Made In Space, one of the company’s subsidiaries, previously relocated their corporate headquarters to Jacksonville, announced by Governor Desantis in January.
Home to Cape Canaveral Spaceport, organizations like Space Florida, and over 17,000 aerospace related companies, Florida is an ideal location for Redwire to continue to grow as a leading developer of cutting-edge space technology and space infrastructure. The state’s growing aerospace industrial sector provides access to a skilled workforce and critical strategic partnerships.
