City of Industry, CA (PRWEB) June 19, 2014
Astrophysics, Inc., a leader in conventional and air cargo security X-ray inspection systems, today announced it hosted Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (CA-32) at its headquarters last week.
Rep. Napolitano was in City of Industry to tour the factory and witness demonstrations of current and new technologies including Astrophysics’ latest screening innovation, the VI7 motion view X-ray system which uses seven viewing angles to get a near-3D image of the parcel or bag being screened.
In addition to the new VI7 motion view X-ray system, Rep. Napolitano experienced first-hand Astrophysics’ dedication to its R&D process. The company’s investment will further advance Astrophysics’ already dominant position in Critical Infrastructure into new markets such as Ports and Borders as well as Transportation. Additionally, Astrophysics is developing new technologies that will enable the company to provide advanced screening solutions to customers carrying cargo and passengers on commercial aircraft and sea-going vessels.
“Our commitment to provide quality and customized security solutions for our customers, has transformed Astrophysics into the fastest growing company in the industry. Our fast turn-around times can only be achieved because of our strategy in keeping as much of our manufacturing and procurement here in California as we can.” said François Zayek, CEO of Astrophysics. “It is good to know we have Rep. Napolitano’s commitment to assist our mission to provide products and services that are designed to deter acts of violence.”
During the visit, Astrophysics stressed the importance of the ability for companies like itself to compete in government contracts to sell their products here at home. Astrophysics is developing the most robust technology at the best value in the industry and it is creating jobs and growing its business which will further support a strong economy in the Los Angeles area.
