Without a doubt, Huntsville has seen a lot of growth. In fact, SAS already had a small office in Huntsville. Now, they’re expanding with the help of their partners NASA and the Department of Defense.

SAS is known for incorporating propulsion, avionics, and launch site tech with aerospace hardware. Did you know, SAS Flight Factory is AS9100D-certified? In other words, it’s certified by the standardized system for building aerospace tech.

SAS will bring 30 more high-tech jobs to the Rocket City. Bringing companies like SAS to this city proves that Huntsville is one of the leaders of tech jobs.

“Alabama is committed to having a business climate that affords underrepresented businesses a reason to locate and thrive here. An innovative small business like SAS will not only bring vitality to our business community but also provide a boost for our efforts to elevate STEM education and careers.”

Secretary Canfield
