General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics, has dedicated its new Healdsburg, CA, facility. A ribbon-cutting ceremony and facility tour was held with employees, local business and community leaders, customers and government personnel.

The state-of-the-art facility is designed to meet the rigorous standards of the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) for a “clean room” production environment. It will house the company’s manufacturing operations for advanced electro-mechanical actuation systems used in a variety of guided projectiles and missiles. General Dynamics supplies proportional control actuation systems to a number of defense contractors.

“This operations expansion reinforces our commitment to serve the missile defense industry using innovative technology combined with a proven and reliable production capability,” said Dan Paul, vice president and general manager of Precision Systems for the company.

The General Dynamics Healdsburg Operations is a world-class developer, manufacturer and integrator of electro-mechanical servo-control actuation systems (CAS) for the U.S. armed forces and missile-defense industry. The Healdsburg operations produce some of the highest power-density actuators in the world for applications on land, sea and air.
