International Space Station
Ducworks, Inc. was founded in 1994 to assist The Boeing Company’s Rocketdyne Division with prototype manufacturing of key International Space Station test hardware. This hardware was manufactured and shipped to NASA’s neutral buoyancy laboratories in Huntsville, Alabama and Houston, Texas for underwater testing by astronauts. As Ducworks grew, so did the opportunities. Soon Ducworks began fabricating full-scale mockups of entire International Space Station structures and also performed the underwater assembly of these structures with their own crew of divers at the neutral buoyancy facilities.
