Vantage Opens Office in Wallops Island, Virginia

Vantage Systems, Inc., is growing! In support of Vantage’s team at Wallops Flight Facility, Vantage opened the doors of their new Wallops Island office at 33551 Chincoteague Road, Wallops Island, VA 23337, on October 1, 2012. Five days later, Vantage was a proud sponsor of Chincoteague’s 40th Annual Oyster Festival in support of the local community and the Chincoteague Chamber of Commerce. The popular event showcased oysters straight from the island, served on the half shell, single fried and steamed. Thousands of visitors packed Tom’s Cove Campground to savor and celebrate Shore seafood at the 40th annual Oyster Festival. 

“NASA Wallops is a unique national space asset providing rapid and low cost science.  Wallops Island is also growing in importance to NASA’s commercial space initiative with the upcoming launch of Antares for commercial ISS resupply.  Vantage is proud to serve NASA Wallops and we have some great people there working on balloon, sounding rocket, and aircraft flight projects”, remarked Joe Polk, President of Vantage Systems Inc.  

“Wallops Island is a tight knit community centered around the Wallops Island facility.  Today Vantage is a subcontractor to Wallops Code 500, and we seek to grow that role to a prime contractor level in 2013.  As such our responsibility to be a good corporate citizen in the Wallops community grows.  We are pleased to increase our activity in the community and will be doing more as we grow our role there”, remarked Mike Fatig, Senior Vice President at Vantage.
