Since its beginnings in the 1976, INVAP has grown from a small office to a surface area of over 10,000 square meters of laboratories, workshops and office space. The head office of INVAP is located in San Carlos de Bariloche, Patagonia, in the foothills of the Andes, about 1700 km southwest of Buenos Aires.
The staff of INVAP comprises more than 800 people. This includes a body of highly skilled professionals, speciallized in the handling of complex systems; an advanced Quality Management System; advanced technical and administrative projects control systems and a quarter of a century of experience in the management of innovation.
Mostly thanks to INVAP, who has made an important and successful effort in the aperture of new markets, Argentina is now known worldwide as a reliable supplier of nuclear facilities, as well as of cobalt therapy and industrial automation equipment.
INVAP is the only company in South America that has worked with NASA (the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration) for complete space projects. In this field, the company has shown its proficiency as constructor of satellites, payloads and ground stations.
