Co-Operative Industries Aerospace & Defense Expands Manufacturing Capacity
This newly renovated site boasts 121,096 square feet of overall manufacturing capacity. "This new facility represents a 150% increase in overall manufacturing area for us. In addition to our current work in process, we have approximately 22,000 square feet of available space for expansion," stated Sam Symonds, President and CEO of the company. "The additional floor space will allow for improved work flow and long-run, large capacity production of our wiring harnesses. Relocation into this larger and modernized building is a key part of our long-term strategy and positions us for new opportunities." Several capital equipment purchases were also made to help facilitate future needs. As a service disabled veteran owned small business, Co-Operative Industries currently supports a number of prime contractors with electrical wiring harness design and manufacture for both ground and aerospace applications. These include power cables, signal harnesses, and test cables for military programs such as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, the F-16 Falcon, C-130 Hercules, UAVs, and a variety of legacy programs.
