The Edge Autonomy Huntsville office is the company’s fifth location nationwide and is home to highly skilled technical personnel with a focus on advanced engineering, robotics, and composites manufacturing. With an important customer footprint in northern Alabama, this also positions the company to respond rapidly to emerging requirements.

“Our work with the US government, FVEY, and NATO partners has created more than 40 full-time positions at our Huntsville facility within the last year alone,” said Joshua Stinson, Chief Growth Officer of Edge Autonomy. “The Huntsville area has phenomenal resources to support the fast-growing technology sector, which will greatly facilitate the advancement of our uncrewed technology development and production.”

Edge Autonomy has invested a significant amount of capital expenditure in its Huntsville operations in the past year. The company plans further expansion and will double the size of its Alabama facility to 68,000ft2 by the end of the third quarter of 2024.

“We are in an exciting time of growth,” said Steve Adlich, Chief of Staff for Edge Autonomy. “While we continue to meet increasing production needs for our uncrewed aircraft and optical ISR solutions, we will also grow our Huntsville headcount.

Edge Autonomy hosted guests for the ribbon cutting ceremony, including Congressman Dale Strong, Mayor Tommy Battle, Huntsville Chamber of Commerce and other distinguished guests. After opening remarks, guests were able to tour the Huntsville facility, where they learned more about Edge Autonomy’s operations and further expansion efforts to support global customers.

“I’m honored to help cut the ribbon for Edge Autonomy’s new Huntsville location,” said Congressman Dale Strong. “They are doing crucial work to support American servicemembers with the most innovative capabilities while also benefitting our local economy by bringing new jobs, ideas, and dollars to North Alabama.”
