Why ESSCO?

Since 1961, ESSCO has been the world’s technological leader and supplier of ground-based rigid radomes and naval shipboard radome applications.  Since our inception, multiple companies have entered and exited this marketplace. We believe that the longevity of ESSCO is based on the following core principles that the company was founded upon.

  1. To provide the most technologically advanced radomes available in order to meet or exceed customers specifications and expectations
  2. To treat our customers with the utmost respect and integrity and to build relationships with them that are based on a team principle of achieving common goals
  3. To provide quality products and services that are recognized as the benchmark of the industry
  4. To be consistently recognized worldwide as the technological leader in the industry
  5. To instill in each and every one of our employees a commitment to excellence

Having lived by these core principles since our founding over 50 years ago the following are some of the key factors that separates us from our competition.

Industry Leadership and Longevity - For over half a century, whether in the U.S or Internationally, when a radome is required the first company thought of is ESSCO.  No other company in the industry can match ESSCO’s commitment to research and development, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, quality and product, and practical field experience available in either our U.S. and European manufacturing locations.

Our experience in all aspects of large, multi-year, U.S. Government and international programs, consisting of program management, planning, manufacturing, delivery and installation is unsurpassed in the industry.

Unity of vision - Whether in the U.S. or at our manufacturing facility in Ireland, our design, manufacturing, and testing capabilities are entirely integrated and operated by our in-house staff of manufacturing and engineering professionals.  As a result, our entire organization starting from the point of sale through, planning, program management, manufacturing, quality and to final installation is dedicated to fulfilling one objective: delivering the highest quality, and best performing radomes in the world.

Range of disciplines - Having complete in-house capabilities for design, engineering, manufacturing, testing and installation we are the only company in the industry with the internal resources able to quickly address any technical issues that may arise – structural, electromagnetic, material, field related or otherwise.
