Rock West Composites │ Facilities

Rock West Composites’ facilities are located in Salt Lake City, Utah and San Diego, California. Both venues are ideally suited to the manufacture of products made from carbon fiber composite materials. With a history of aerospace and commercial composites production, both Southern California and Utah provide the necessary talent pool, manufacturing infrastructure, and customer base that creates a healthy environment for our company.

Our San Diego location has 30,000 sq ft. and is home to the corporate offices, as well as engineering and manufacturing space. The Salt Lake City manufacturing facility is located in a 66,000 sq. ft. building. Currently, we occupy 48,000 sq. ft. and sub-lease the remaining space; we have room to expand! One big competitive advantage we enjoy as a business is owning our own factory/real estate.
