RCS Rocket Motor Components Inc. and Quest Aerospace Inc. have successfully completed a corporate merger.

The announcement came July 18 from RCS President Gary C. Rosenfield. As part of the merger, Quest Aerospace will close its Colorado facility and moving its operations to the RCS facility in Cedar City, Utah. Rosenfield will maintain his position as RCS president. Quest Aerospace President Bill Stine will become vice president of RCS.

“The two companies have nearly identical manufacturing operations and the
merging of the two operations into one is a major cost savings for us,” Stine said in a press release from RCS.

Quest is widely known as a leader in the beginner and education markets for
model rockets. Its kit designs and rocket motors are geared for the entry-level
rocketeer. The RCS/AeroTech line of mid to high-power products starts right
where the Quest line leaves off.

“We will be the only hobby rocket company in existence that can bring a fourth-grader into the hobby and carry him all the way through to an ‘M’-powered Level 3 certified flight and beyond with our own products” Rosenfield said.

Rosenfield and Stine expected the move from Colorado to Utah to be complete
within thirty days and customers should see very little interruption of shipping, according to the press release.
