MFG Galileo Composites moves manufacturing to Alabama

The new facility in Opp, Ala., is expected to absorb increased demand for Galileo's composite radomes and reflectors; engineering and administration staff will remain in Reno, Nev.

MFG Galileo Composites (Opp, Ala., USA), a specialist in the design and manufacturing of composite radomes and reflectors, has announced that manufacturing operations for the company have been relocated from Sparks, Nev., USA, to Opp, Ala., USA. The new built-to-spec facility adds manufacturing capacity and processing capabilities to accommodate increased demand, as well as improving accessibility to a significant percentage of its customer base. The company will maintain a satellite office in Reno where key engineering and administrative team members will continue to operate.

The new location in Southeast USA is accessible via numerous regional hubs, including Atlanta, Memphis, New Orleans, Birmingham and Pensacola. Opp is also home to sister company MFG Alabama, a manufacturer of large molded composite parts for renewable energy and other applications.

This new facility is said to be world class in terms of dedicated manufacturing floor space and state-of-the-art processing capabilities for composite radomes, reflectors, shelters and related products. The company anticipates continued domestic and international sales growth in 2009 and 2010, and expects to quickly absorb the expanded capacity.

MFG Galileo ground-based and shipboard radomes support L-band through Ka-band applications. The company has an installed base of more than 500 radomes around the world and is part of Molded Fiber Glass Companies (Ashtabula, Ohio, USA).
