If you are an engineer, technician, tradesman, inventor, innovator, maker, robotist, Steampunk sculptor, or just a pack rat, then you’ve probably heard of Astro Too, and rumors of its demise are highly mistaken. MRAM Engineering Surplus has inked a deal with Astro Too to manage its operation as well as to co-locate MRAM and its operation at the 3060 Dixie Hwy Palm Bay site. The Astro legacy has long been a staple of South Brevard and part of the County’s DNA for decades. Way back in the late 80’s Pete and Mary Shaw created Astro Marketing as a wholesale purveyor of industrial surplus; soon Brevard’s Makers got wind of the plethora of cool components gathering at the West Melbourne, Vickie Circle location and descended upon the firm with an unrelenting fever for “new stuff”. The Shaws, sensing the opportunity, created a retail operation and named it Astro Too. This offspring was located on Sarno Rd for many years until the retail operation was sold to Mr. Roger Bentley. Mr. Bentley eventually moved and expanded the operation to it’s NASA Blvd. location, where is flourished for many years. The restructuring of NASA Blvd caused a sharp decrease in traffic to this location, and Mr. Bentley moved Astro Too to its current location at 3060 Dixie Hwy (US1) in North Palm Bay.
Now comes MRAM Engineering Surplus headed by John P Sessa, a Brevard resident since 1977 and a retro-fossilized electrical engineer, who was one of those locust that would regularly descend upon Astro’s treasures. MRAM has begun the process of restructuring Astro Too to have a modicum of organization, while still keeping an ample amount of chaos for the eclectic treasure hunter. MRAM’s slogan is “Technology Re-Purposed” and intends to move beyond the basic recycling of discarded technology and find new avenues to re-utilize working components and equipment. MRAM has expanded its services to include; appliance parts, re-conditioned UPS’s and battery replacements, PC & laptop repair, as well as bringing in mass quantities of “New Stuff”.
MRAM@ Astro Too is located at 3060 Dixie Hwy (US1) in Palm Bay, Fl
