Worlds Largest Satellite Manufacturing Site Coming to the Space Coast

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Waves Realty BK3246853

Terran Orbital is building the worlds largest satellite manufacturing facility here on the Florida Space Coast! The company announced it chose the Space Coast because of the amazing "ready to work" talent that will allow the company to ramp up quickly. The 660,000 square foot factory will be capable of producing “thousands of different types of space vehicles per year,” including 1000 complete satellites and over 1 million satellite components per year, the company said in a statement.

The new facility will create about 2100 new jobs with the facility anchored in Merritt Island near the Kennedy Space Center. Below is a rendering of the facility plans:

This is another incredible coup for our great Governor Ron DeSantis! Terran Orbital will be investing over 300 million dollars into facility build out. The estimated annual salary of the 2100 jobs is about $85,000 per the Space Coast EDC.

For the longest time, the Space Coast was a place to shoot off rockets, today with the Blue Origin manufacturing facility, Embraer, and now Terran Orbital, the Space Coast is also turning into a manufacturing hub!

Hi Jeff... what a wonderful addition to the Space Coast! Not only will this bring jobs to the area, I'd bet they will be really good paying jobs... all of which will trickle down into the community.

Hello Jeffrey - this is good news for the Space Coast area of Florida.  Businesses like this should bring more attention, additional jobs and of course more people to the area.

Morning Jeffery,

2100 jobs means a possibility of new talent coming in, in turn it means they will be looking for housing.  I know you'll get your share.

I always like to think about what satellite makers started out designing before they started on satellites. Satellites are such an important step tha I sometimes wonder what the first step was in the career of a satellite maker.
