Crystal Group is Expanding

The growing support Crystal Group provides to defense, industrial, and autonomous vehicle markets will soon take place within three closely adjacent buildings totaling over 160,000 sq. ft.  The new, third building is expected to be complete in September 2018, and will be Crystal Group’s corporate headquarters and primary manufacturing facility.

Quality certification requirements for ISO 9001:2015/AS9100D, as well as all other manufacturing, inspection, and test processes, fixtures, tooling, test sets, etc. will be adhered and/or transferred to the new facility.

A transition plan, including safety stock requirements and First Article Inspection, will be communicated as our new facility nears completion.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
