IDP Moving HQ to Rockwall

Rockwall Site for Another CA-to-TX HQ Move

Integrated Defense Products (IDP), a metal forming and fabrication company, will soon relocate its headquarters to the Rockwall Technology Park. They’re moving from Oxnard, California.

The company serves as a machine shop specializing in manufacturing parts for the defense, firearm, aerospace, and medical industries.

IDP is developing a 21,000 SF facility on a 2.51-acre parcel, adjacent to State Highway 276, in Phase I of the Rockwall Technology Park. IDP has committed to adding at least $7 million in new taxable value to the Rockwall community, primarily a result of the new building and taxable equipment. The company will be looking to employ nearly 40 workers upon build out and ramp up of operations. Of those individuals, an estimated 25-30 will be hired from the local workforce. Construction will likely be completed in Spring 2023.

IDP’s Brandon Buschold explains the move, “Texas is politically, by nature, an extremely business friendly state…IDP will be strategically positioned to focus its efforts in building a stronger team while continuing its focus on new technologies.”
