SAS Manufacturing Opens Arvada, Colorado, Production Complex

SAS Manufacturing unveiled a new 25,000-square-foot advanced machining facility for design, manufacturing and assembly of aerospace components in Arvada, Colorado.

A wholly owned subsidiary of Special Aerospace Services, a tactical engineering firm, SAS Manufacturing is a precision manufacturing company, specializing in design, precision machining, prototyping, 3D printing, and additive manufacturing, and services the Aerospace, Defense, and Commercial Industries. The company has received AS9100C/ISO9001:2008 Certification.

The new fully renovated building complex is equipped with state-of-the-art manufacturing systems, including automated 5-axis milling and 3D printing capabilities, to serve a growing government and commercial client base worldwide.

According to company officials, SAS Manufacturing expects to more than double the facility’s workforce of skilled machining technicians, managers and apprentices over the next 24 months.

“The Arvada facility is among the most advanced manufacturing plants in the state,” said Heather Bulk, President & CEO of SAS Manufacturing. “It is home to the latest automated machining equipment integrated into a web-accessible portal that makes the entire manufacturing process transparent to the client.”

“At SAS, our mission is to serve as an Aerospace Lifecycle Partner for our clients, and the Arvada manufacturing plant plays a key role in this,” said Bulk. “The SAS team can take a client’s concept from design and prototyping to testing and production in a few weeks.”

“SAS Manufacturing is the perfect example of how a small business is becoming a vital part of our aerospace economy,” said U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07). “SAS Manufacturing helps ensure we have the skills and ability to design and manufacture items for the aerospace industry and other industries right here in Colorado.”

"On behalf of the entire City Council, and the Citizens of Arvada, we are pleased and honored that Special Aerospace Services has made such a significant investment by relocating to Arvada,” said Arvada Mayor Marc Williams. “This is a high-quality employer that enhances employment opportunities and services for our community and the Nation."
