“To provide excellence in manufacturing and engineering of high performance Aerospace and Defense products facilitated by the highest level of responsiveness, performance, efficiency and integrity.”      - Vantage’s Founding Principle

Vantage Associates, Inc. was founded in 1984 as a designer and manufacturer of quality products and product components that utilize expertise in the processing of thermoplastic and composite materials. The company provides contract manufacturing services to aerospace, defense, and commercial markets.

Contract manufacturing includes interior components for commercial airliners made primarily of thermoplastics. The largest component of these sales is made directly to Boeing which has been a major customer for over 25 years. The Company also manufactures various aircraft and missile exterior components such as radomes, wing and fuselage elements, and exterior fairings made of structural components.

In addition, Vantage provides a range of custom manufactured enclosures and front panels for commercial products sold into the medical, electronic, and automotive industries.

The Company produces a range of high performance components and products for the defense industry. These consist primarily of antennas and radomes, and most notably, Vantage has been the exclusive provider of undersea devices deployed by marine mammals. The Company has responsibility for manufacturing, assembly and testing of these devices.

The Company operates in highly competitive environments and believes that it has controlled its costs sufficiently well to be one of the most cost efficient manufacturers in the markets it serves.

Vantage is headquartered in National City, California. Most all component manufacturing is performed in a 38,000 square foot facility in Santa Fe Springs, California. Assembly and testing activities are performed in National City.

The Company is qualified to Boeing Commercial Airplane Quality Standard D1-9000, to military quality specifications and is a certified UL Fabricator.
