About Lynntech

Lynntech began operations in 1987, providing early-stage scientific research and technology development for government-sponsored initiatives. Building on early successes, we expanded into prototype and product development for wide-ranging applications. Our scientists and engineers work together to execute all the stages of technology and product development including exploratory research, design and analysis, advanced fabrication, software integration, testing and evaluation. On-Demand Systems (ODS), an independent manufacturing company based out of the Westinghouse Building, was spun-off in 2019 to transition emerging technologies from the design and development phase into production. ODS’s manufacturing proficiencies synergize with Lynntech’s R&D endeavors, resulting in improved commercialization success.

Success Through Collaboration and Integration

Lynntech’s Engineering Department actively collaborates with technology group personnel in order to transition technologies from the scientific stage to an advanced engineering development stage. Our Program Management Office (PMO) provides dynamic oversight to ensure all executions are performed within budget, and on schedule. Lynntech actively collaborates and communicates with project customers to ensure that requirements are being met including verification and validation milestones. Lynntech meets customer needs by integrating creative talent, business expertise, and purpose-built facilities.

We meet customer needs by integrating creative talent, business expertise and purpose-built facilities.

Our Facility

Lynntech is located in the Westinghouse Building on the 30-acre Providence Park, adjacent to Texas A&M University (TAMU). The Westinghouse Building has 160,000 square feet (ft2) of laboratory, office, and warehouse space. Lynntech occupies 80,000 ft2 with the ability to expand into available space to accommodate growth. On-Demand Systems (ODS) currently shares space and resources within the Lynntech facility.

Our space is occupied by an interdisciplinary team of experienced scientists and engineers with a wide range of expertise in areas of molecular & cellular biology, genetics, proteomics, biochemistry, chemistry, electrochemistry, physics, electronics, and engineering, as well as support staff that carries out accounting, document preparation, and administrative support functions.

Lynntech’s proximity to the TAMU campus allows access to its academic resources and facilities, which has fostered several collaborative research activities.
