Rock West Composites (RWC) has shifted to its new corporate headquarters in San Diego, California, a facility more than three times larger than its previous headquarters. As the company positions itself for significant growth, the move will help accommodate new staff, add manufacturing space, and grow capability for large-scale composites manufacturing.

While the company retains its locations in Salt Lake City, UT and Tijuana, Mexico, RWC’s former San Diego location on Precision Park Lane will be vacated in favour of the new building. With 107,000 square foot of total space, there is 20,000 square foot of office space, 80,000 square foot of manufacturing space, and an additional 7,000 square foot for general warehouse use. The entire space in the office is not fully utilised, and the company is positioned for significant growth. This building will house the corporate offices, engineering, product development, and manufacturing centred around prototyping and production.

The plant will be able to accommodate large scale composites production and significant new capital equipment with the intention of growing the company’s already expansive capabilities to meet the space requirements of the expanding business. Its location is also close to the border with easy access to the company’s Tijuana plant, which specialises in high-volume production. The new facility has an adaptive infrastructure that allows for rapid refitting of manufacturing areas to accommodate new programme requirements. There are clean room areas with varying levels of classification to accommodate customer needs.

“We are excited to start the new year in our new location,” said Jim Gormican, CEO of Rock West Composites. “As our company continues to grow, we need to be responsive to our customers’ needs and this new building with adaptive infrastructure will enable us to be efficient and cost effective in all our programme activities.”
