Pickens III, Chairman and CEO of Astrotech Corporation. “We are also very proud to announce the completion of our new development facility in Webster, TX, where 1st Detect is ramping up its manufacturing capabilities in anticipation of maturing joint development partnerships.  We are educating a number of high value markets with the opportunity to sell solutions that meet the general needs of quantitative analysis on the factory floor."


“Our fourth quarter performance has been exceptional, and we are proud to release the best earnings report in over three years” said Carlisle Kirkpatrick, CFO of Astrotech Corporation. “During the quarter, Astrotech Space Operations processed two very important U.S. government missions and we are nearly complete on our multi-year Ground Support Equipment contract.

This diversity allows the Company to enhance its portfolio of future repeat customers. Our financial performance has been remarkable both this quarter and for the year just ending. EBITDA for the year was a very strong $1.6 million, achieved primarily through consistent delivery of high value payload services and cost controls within our SG&A functions.
