WESTMINSTER, CO—Ball Aerospace will soon complete work on an expansion to its Aerospace Manufacturing Center here, adding around 122,000 square feet to bring the building size to more than 490,000 square feet. 

The expansion will significantly enhance the company's capabilities to develop and produce tactical mission systems for government and commercial customers. This most recent addition to the AMC campus comes after the completion of a 146,000 square-foot expansion of the facility in 2019, the addition of a new Compact Range testing facility, and 12,500 square-foot highbay completed in 2020 and 2021, respectively.

“Ball Aerospace has experienced tremendous business growth in recent years, which has allowed us the opportunity to add more people to our team and more space to meet the needs of our customers,” says Dave Kaufman, president of Ball Aerospace. “Throughout this period of growth, we have been committed to nurturing a strong culture of innovation and inclusiveness that makes Ball unique. A big part of that culture is collaboration, and these new facilities, combined with the increasing number of our team members returning to the office regularly, will be vital to fostering that culture.”

Recently, the company was selected to design a prototype multi-band, low-observable satellite communications antenna to be installed on the U.S. Navy’s newest stealth destroyers. Ball Aerospace is also building an operational weather satellite that will provide critical and actionable environmental intelligence to military operations in all warfighting domains.
