Avionics and connectivity solutions provider Astronautics has completed the relocation of its mechanical engineering prototype and environmental test facility—known as the “model shop”—from Milwaukee to its newly-renovated 190,000-sq-ft headquarters in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.

The move marks the end of the third and final phase of the more than two-year renovation project and the first time in the company’s more than six-decade history that production, repair, quality control, engineering, support services, and the prototype unit are all under the same roof, a move which it says will enhance collaboration and innovation.

“There are numerous advantages and efficiencies that Astronautics and our customers will realize by having the model shop in the same state-of-the-art facility as our other operations,” explained Tom Servais, manager of the prototype division. “The design process is enhanced because engineering, manufacturing, and repairs have convenient access to fabrication and environmental tests.” He added that the new facility will also provide room for operational growth.
