The first space race may already be run, but now is a time of great innovation and growth in the final frontier.

Companies like SpaceX and Blue Origin are pushing the boundaries further and further. They’re looking at taking cargo to space, getting tourists out of this world and even, in the case of SpaceX, wondering if it’s possible to colonize Mars.

Jason Riggs, the director of the Aerospace Business Unit for Technetics Group, is used to hearing big ideas from customers and figuring out how they can help make those things happen.

“We have always been a very customer-centric organization, so we work really hard to be sitting alongside our customers so, as they are growing and evolving, we have the opportunity to do so alongside them,” Riggs said. “It’s not always easy. Change is hard. But when you’re focused on being there for your customer and see them moving down a path that’s new, different and maybe a little uncomfortable, you have the opportunity to decide, yes, we’re going to take our business down that same path, or we’re not.”

Technetics finds itself saying yes a lot more than no these days, expanding its offerings beyond what long-time clients have come to expect from the group.

“For a lot of folks that have known Technetics Group or even some of the brands and names we operated under prior to the evolution of Technetics, a lot of people have known us for static metal sealings,” Riggs said. “Those products are used all over both the launch vehicle itself and propulsion systems – anytime you have an assembly of some sort.”

The group also does larger machine metal seals, K-Port seals and a variety of other sealing and fluid conveyance solutions.

Clearly, it’s adapting with the times and offering solutions fit for this new chapter in space history.
