With headquarters and production facilities in Forres, UK and design facilities in Denmark, our European location means shorter supply lines, easier communications and reduced operational costs.
Since 2015, we have raised over £38M in public and private funding and work with the support of several EU governments and key partners to ensure the best launch vehicle and launch site options.
The company has received funding from two of Europe’s largest venture capital funds (Sunstone Technology Ventures, now Heartcore, and the HighTech Gründerfonds) as well as private investors, the UK Space Agency (UKSA), the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Commission Horizon 2020 programme.
Orbex staff members have professional backgrounds with NASA, ESA and several other commercial spaceflight organisations. Equipment developed by Orbex team members has flown on more than 50 deep space missions, and collectively they have developed more than 50 rocket engines and a wide range of orbital and suborbital launch vehicles including ATV, Ariane 5 and Ariane 6.
