Astro Pak's new Florida facility, located just outside of the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) opened its doors for business in July 2018. The newly renovated 38,000 square foot facility, located at 8855 Grissom Parkway in Titusville houses the nation's newest AS9100 and ISO certified contract precision cleaning cleanroom.

TITUSVILLE, Fla., Aug. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The opening of the new Titusville

facility marks the completion of the process that began when Astro Pak acquired Chemko Technical Services in 2016. Chemko had a well established local presence, servicing the Space Coast since 1972. Astro Pak continues that tradition by supporting on-site work at KSC on projects such as the ongoing work at the Mobile Launch Platform (MLP) in support of NASA's upcoming Space Launch System (SLS), as well as meeting the needs for component cleaning at it's new state-of-the-art cleanroom facility.

"The new facility offers greatly expanded capabilities enabling more services to be offered to our local and regional customers," says Jonathan Hopkins, General Manager of Chemko "We have combined our world class precision cleaning services and our industry-leading field operations teams under the same roof. As a result, we are now able to support our customers both on the Space Coast and throughout the southeast region with an unmatched level of efficiency and value"

Astro Pak will be hosting an Open House at the new facility in Titusville, Florida. The event, tentatively set for October 30, 2018, will showcase the 38,000 square foot facility and its signature 15'x15' tower with a 70' vertical rise that allows the processing of hoses up to 60' in length. The facility also houses an ISO 7 cleanroom and accompanying ISO 6 lab joined by a spacious shop area with a 2 ton bridge crane. These facilities are further augmented by large aqueous processing tanks, a pre-clean area with multiple work stations, ultrasonic units, as well as hydrostatic, hydraulic, and pneumatic testing capabilities.
