Technically Superior Engineering Designs, Research & Advance Manufacturing

Using our advanced integrated modeling, design, machining and quality assurance tools and highly skilled technology development team, your innovative ideas can become proven designs ready for production at a lower cost and highest quality.

In addition, we can shorten the time and costs to start, or expand, production of complex items by utilizing our 440,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. We offer the latest manufacturing techniques meeting the highest quality assurance standards to work with almost any metal or composite material. For sensitive projects requiring high security, we have a DOE-cleared workforce and manufacturing facility that has been approved to stringent federal security protocols.

Whether it is one piece or thousands, our mission is to design and produce your components at the highest quality and yield to reduce your cost and achieve your performance goals.

Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing

Centrus operates one of the most modern, NQA-1 and ISO compliant, high-precision prototyping and manufacturing facilities in the United States, with the ability to make classified components. Centrus’ highly skilled, experienced and Q-cleared workforce, partner network, and extensive supply chain provides the capability to manufacture and assemble complex components to tolerances less than .0001 inch.

This is supported by a full range of design, analysis, manufacturing, and certification services, including:

  • 440,000 square ft. climate controlled, manufacturing facility for sustained volume production at ultra-high precision and very high yields;
  • The ability to work with virtually any material, including additive manufacturing structures, nuclear grade stainless steel, and nickel. Many other materials can be accommodated;
  • Ultra-high precision composites fabrication for parts exposed to  stresses and adverse conditions, with onsite testing of completed material properties;
