Why Melbourne? Melbourne is part of Brevard County, an area known as Florida’s Space Coast, because it is home to an exciting aerospace/aviation sector. However, the Space Coast’s workforce strengths extend beyond the aerospace sector, having the most concentrated manufacturing workforce in the state of Florida. With more than 500 manufacturers, Florida’s Space Coast is more than space. Live Free Armory is proud to be a part of this manufacturing community and call Brevard County home.
