Manufactured In The USA

We have the most technologically advanced systems on the market at an incredible value. How do we do this? Astrophysics has its own fabrication company to lower the cost of mechanical parts, and we in turn extend this discount to the customer. Most of all, we buy primarily from US vendors and manufacture in the USA at our headquarters in California, just 25 miles east of Los Angeles. Assembling at our headquarters gives us direct control over quality and improved manufacturing efficiency, all this we pass onto the customer in lead time, reliability and value.
