Systima Technologies (Headquartered in Kirkland, WA) has announced the expansion of its workforce and new facility construction in Washington State. The expansion is in response to the United States Department of Defense (DoD) needs for advanced composite and energetic systems (ordnance systems) for high priority programs. Systima is adding two new campuses located in the nearby city of Maltby, WA and further north in Port of Skagit, WA. Construction is underway and the new facilities will be operational starting in the summer of 2020.
Systima is a leader in the development of high-performance structures, shrouds, and separation systems that are critical to fielding hypersonic and long-range weapon systems. Many of these systems are the first of their kind to be designed, tested and fielded. Systima has a unique capability to design and produce light weight structures with integrated energetic deployment systems, leveraging flight-proven technologies and manufacturing processes.
The new campuses will provide over 100,000 ft2 of additional facility space for composite production, energetic system integration and production, and system qualification testing. Additional space is available on the 10 acre campus in Skagit county for the production of larger systems that are over 4-5 ft in diameter or length, for tactical and strategic missiles and satellite launch vehicles. Both facilities will have additional office space to support Systima’s growing work force. “Systima’s expansion will provide the capacity required to meet the growing production rates for DoD platforms over the next decade and beyond,” said Tom Prenzlow, President and CEO of Systima.
