Blue Origin opens Alabama rocket factory
Posted: Sat, Feb 22, 2020, 8:18 AM ET (1318 GMT)
Blue Origin formally opened Monday the Alabama factory where it will produce rocket engines. The Huntsville factory, which cost more than $200 million to build, will be used to produce BE-4 engines for the company's New Glenn rocket and United Launch Alliance's Vulcan rocket, and the BE-3U engine for New Glenn's upper stage. The factory will start building engines there this summer, and Blue Origin will gradually transition engine production from its current facility near Seattle to Huntsville over the next two to three years. The new factory will ultimately be able to build 42 engines a year.
