Carolyn Smith, Realtor – Rocket Crafters Is Coming To Brevard County Florida, Along With Hundreds of New Jobs!

Rocket Crafters coming to Titusville, Brevard County fl

Rocket Crafters is moving its operations to Brevard County, FL along with hundreds of new jobs!

Great news for Brevard County! Rocket Crafters, a Utah-based high-tech aerospace firm, chose Brevard County, Florida as its new home! After considering four other states around the U.S., Rocket Crafters selected Titusville, Florida for its concentration of highly skilled and experienced aerospace workers, as well as new and potential talent coming from local colleges and universities including Florida Tech and UCF. Rocket Crafters was offered tax incentives to offset relocation costs, as well as several performance based incentives from the state and county. These performance based incentives will help ensure that Rocket Crafters fulfills its planned hiring and capital investments, or it will lose the incentives.

Initially, Rocket Crafters, a company heavily involved in developing aircraft and propulsion systems, will employ about 150 aerospace engineers, designers, pilots, program managers, and administrators for research, development, and testing. However by 2017-18, Rocket Crafters has plans to employ 1,300 or more people as they manufacture suborbital space planes that will travel six times faster than a traditional jet. This means that passengers could fly from Melbourne, FL to London, England in 90 minutes instead of 9 hours. Wow! Now where can I buy a ticket for that?! Sounds like a dream come true to me!

Rocket Crafters will begin operations in a temporary facility at Space Coast Regional Airport later this year. Over the next two years, the company plans to spend more than $70 million constructing a 400,000 square foot facility on 33 acres of Space Coast Regional Airport land.

This is wonderful news for the Brevard County, FL economy! More jobs coming to Brevard County, along with amazing plans to change the way we travel…sounds good all around!
