Bradford Space

Bradford is a high-tech developer and manufacturer of satellite control sub-systems and components. Its activities are organized in product lines, each of which ranks top positions (first or second) within the European supplier field.

Operating from Heerle (Roosendaal) in the southwestern part of the Netherlands, the company is well known for its attitude and orbit control systems, propulsion systems and thermal systems. Moreover, Bradford is world leader in the development and delivery of Glovebox systems for ESA, NASA, RKA, and precursors of JAXA.

In July of 2017, Bradford acquired ECAPS , otherwise known as Ecological Advanced Propulsion Systems, expanding its facilities to Solna, Sweden. This acquisition means a major expansion into non-toxic spacecraft propulsion systems.

Bradford is fully autonomous and capable of large series production of space qualified hardware. The company puts an emphasis on forward-thinking innovation. With a long history of satisfaction, Bradford will grow and adapt to ongoing technology needs in Europe and all over the world.
