To improve people’s lives
By helping put people and satellites in space, by protecting our soldiers and enabling them to rescue others from terrorists, and in providing technologies used to extract minerals from the ground, Ensign-Bickford Aerospace & Defense Company (EBA&D) continuously seeks to improve the lives of people.
Our vision is to be the world leader in energetic and related products and services that serve the Aerospace & Defense Industry. We will earn our customers trust by delivering to our promises; maintaining a robust continuous improvement process, and delivering integrity, teamwork, and innovation in everything we do. We will give back to society and improve the environment so that it is safer for future generations.
With energetics as its primary differentiator, Ensign-Bickford Aerospace & Defense Company (EBA&D) seeks to deliver mission critical hardware and system solutions, integrating complementary technologies and building partnerships to broaden its markets, add value, and grow.
Solutions require innovation. In 1836, William Bickford's invention of a superior initiator for mining explosives, safety fuse, heralded not only a safer era for miners, but the formation of the Ensign-Bickford company. From this single but significant milestone, EBA&D has developed global industry influence and extensive capabilities facilities in five locations; Graham, KY, Moorpark, CA, Tempe, AZ, Sterling, CT and our headquarters in Simsbury, CT.
Ideas, insights and engineering breakthroughs have made us manufacturers of the most reliable, precise aerospace and defense energetic solutions available. Our history of providing high-reliability solutions to these markets is unequaled, as is our commitment to meeting cost, delivery, reliability, environmental, and performance requirements. No other company can match the range of innovative energetic solutions that we've manufactured; this breadth of energetics application and technology is the foundation on which our success—and yours—rests.
