The integration will focus on maintaining continuity, fostering collaboration, and maximizing the value for customers. Clients can expect an enhanced range of expertise, R&D services, and greater access to new and innovative testing services and sensing products, Ryan added.

“The combination of CUBRC and Ahmic Aerospace brings together two industry leaders known for our commitment to leading-edge technologies, excellence, quality, and customer satisfaction,” said CUBRC CEO Tom McMahon. “We will leverage the domain and technical expertise of both CUBRC and Ahmic to drive innovation, advance the state of the art in hypersonic ground and flight testing, and create robust engineering solutions to address the evolving threats to our nation’s security.”

Ahmic’s operations and employees will remain in Dayton, at the heart of Ohio’s Aerospace Corridor, close to many key customers both CUBRC and Ahmic already serve.
