Macfab Will Support the Launch Canada Challenge Rocketry Competition

Macfab, a manufacturer of components and sub-assemblies, has announced it will support the Launch Canada Challenge.

The Launch Canada Challenge is an industry-partnered student rocket competition that was created as a result of university student rocketry programs across the country excelling in international competitions and to fill a gap that government doesn’t seem interested in filling.

Macfab will provide $5,000 in funding. Joe Magyar, Macfab’s Business Development Director is a big believer in the Challenge and what organizer Adam Trumpour is trying to achieve.

“We first met Adam Trumpour at a space industry conference. We were so impressed by his enthusiasm for Canada’s space sector, we featured him in a Macfab video profile. When we heard about Launch Canada, we immediately wanted to be part of this exciting venture.”

He told SpaceQ he hopes this will spur on other companies to get involved.

Adam Trumpour said “industry support is critical to Launch Canada’s success. We are delighted that Macfab recognized the value of nurturing Canada’s future space leaders. Thank you, Team Macfab!”
