Vector Space Systems, a micro satellite space launch company, recently announced it will move its manufacturing facility to the Pima County Aerospace, Defense and Technology Business & Research Park in Tucson.
“With cutting edge companies like Vector Space Systems continuing to locate in Arizona, it is no wonder our state is ranked number one for aerospace manufacturing attractiveness by PricewaterhouseCoopers,” Gov. Doug Ducey said. “Vector Space Systems is precisely the type of innovative, 21st century company we are working to attract to Arizona through our pro-business policies, and an excellent addition to Southern Arizona’s already thriving aerospace industry. I thank Vector Space Systems for its commitment to and confidence in our state.”
A partnership between the county, state and Vector will boost the effort to make Arizona one of the fastest growing technology hubs in the nation.
"While Vector’s eyes are focused on the stars, our home is in Arizona because we believe in its potential as a competitive tech hub, and we’re honored to have the opportunity to contribute toward its economic development in the aerospace manufacturing industry," Jim Cantrell, CEO and founder of Vector Space Systems, said.
