BALTIMORE — Granite State Manufacturing (GSM), a New Hampshire-based contract manufacturing company serving military and commercial markets, acquired Scandia Manufacturing Company Inc., a manufacturer of precision hydraulic and mechanical marine systems for the Department of Defense.
The acquisition dramatically enhances GSM's existing business with the United States Navy.
Granite State Manufacturing plans to maintain all operations at Scandia's 22,000 foot Baltimore facility. Scandia has operated for 56 years in southwest Baltimore, and currently employs 30 highly skilled machinists, mechanics, and welders. The company manufactures and repairs precision hydraulic and mechanical marine assemblies and components to be used in the Navy's submarine systems.
GSM specializes in contract manufacturing of complex systems, including mast-mounted submarine antenna systems, in the fields of precision machining and welding for various branches of the U.S. Military.
Scandia's 30 skilled employees will join GSM's 170 skilled technical and manufacturing personnel to provide the Navy with a more varied suite of capabilities in submarine component manufacture and repair.
