DAHLGREN, Va., 7 Sept. 2016. U.S. Navy surface warfare experts needed contract manufacturing for electronic circuit boards, RF distribution assemblies, and related military and aerospace electronics items. They found their solution from Colonial Assembly and Design LLC in Fredericksburg, Va.

Officials of the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) in Dahlgren, Va., announced a $37.2 million contract to Colonial Assembly on Tuesday for a variety of contracting manufacturing jobs.

Those jobs include design, fabrication, rapid prototyping, and technology integration for:

-- circuit board design;

-- radio frequency (RF) distribution assemblies;

-- synthetic rope assemblies;

-- mechanical fabrication; and

-- fabric assemblies.

Colonial Assembly is doing the contract manufacturing work for the Weapons Control and Integration Department at NSWC Dahlgren. Government agencies and private companies use contract manufacturing for economy and speed in procuring important components and subsystems.

Agencies and companies often use contract manufacturing to avoid the costs of creating and maintaining complex assembly lines, and to help them concentrate on their core technological expertise.

Colonial Manufacturing is part of Zentech Manufacturing Inc. in Baltimore, which acquired Colonial Manufacturing in April 2015.

On this contract Colonial Manufacturing will do the work in Fredericksburg, Va., and should be finished in September 2021. For more information contact Colonial Assembly and Design online at www.colonialassembly.com, or NSWC Dahlgren at www.navsea.navy.mil/Home/Warfare-Centers/NSWC-Dahlgren.
