Trinity Capital announced the commitment of $120 million in equipment financing to Rocket Lab USA, Inc., a leading provider of space launch services and advanced satellite technology.

Based in Long Beach, California, Rocket Lab is an end-to-end space company that provides launch services, satellite manufacturing, spacecraft components, and on-orbit management solutions. Rocket Lab designs and produces technology that has been integrated into over 1,700 satellites globally and has deployed 176 satellites through 43 launches to date.

"Our partnership with Rocket Lab underscores our commitment to fostering groundbreaking technologies and advancing the capabilities of companies at the forefront of space innovation," said Kyle Brown, CEO of Trinity. "We look forward to supporting the Rocket Lab team and providing equipment financing to further fuel the growth of manufacturing needs in the U.S."

This financing comes on the heels of Rocket Lab's $515 million contract with the Space Development Agency to design, develop, produce, test, and operate 18 satellites.

"Rocket Lab is not only delivering reliable launch services but is also driving innovation for satellite component manufacturing and software in the aerospace industry," said Cory Cramer, Director of Equipment Financing at Trinity. "We are excited to partner with their team as they continue to make access to space faster, easier, and more affordable."

The new debt facility from Trinity will be used to fuel Rocket Lab's expansion plans by financing additional manufacturing capacity, testing equipment, and R&D.

"As we continue scaling our launch and space systems businesses to meet the growing demand for space services, we're pleased to partner with the dedicated team at Trinity to accelerate our expansion," said Adam Spice, Rocket Lab Chief Financial Officer. "This partnership enables us to build on the strong momentum as an established leading launch provider, and now also a satellite prime contractor, delivering reliable space services to a growing base of commercial and government customers."
