Space & Defense

Space and Defense Product Offering

Diverse range of products leveraging Reinhold’s breadth of composite and metal manufacturing capabilities

Why Space and Defense Composites Are Attractive

  • Products require a higher level of precision and conformance
  • Products must meet strength, weight, thermal requirements and other critical thresholds
  • Manufacture requires differentiated and technically-difficult production capabilities

How Reinhold Is Further Differentiated

  • Large-scale manufacturing capable of producing a wide range of products sizes
  • Full machining capability across composites, metals and hybrids, including new generation equipment
  • Cure capabilities using autoclaves, hydroclaves, ovens, presses, and “out of autoclave” technologies.
  • Experienced staff of program management and project engineers
  • Experience and capabilities for both development and high-volume production
  • Significant production capacity
  • Rocket Nozzle Assembly

Evolution of Reinhold’s Role


Reinhold is a legacy Patriot supplier for nozzles


Requires advanced metal machining and machining of bonded composite-metal components

Seamless program transition including simultaneous production ramp-up and program growth (increasing orders)

Old program design and obsolete drawing requiring reverse engineering of the production process


Close collaboration with the customer to transfer manufacturing knowledge

Deploy engineering and manufacturing resources to understand processes, techniques and ways to leverage Reinhold’s technologies to quickly ramp up production

Matched skills of direct labor pool to program and manufacturing requirements


Reinhold now produces expanded number of components, sub-assemblies and assemblies

Case Study: Complex Shaped Composites
