HEALDSBURG, Calif., July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), dedicated its new Healdsburg, Calif., facility yesterday at 190 Foss Creek Circle.  A ribbon-cutting ceremony and facility tour was held with employees, local business and community leaders, customers and government personnel.

The Healdsburg operations produce some of the highest power-density actuators in the world for applications on land, sea and air.
