StandardAero announces plans for expansion at three U.S. facilities
StandardAero Component Services has announced a significant investment and expansion at three of the company’s U.S. sites during 2018 and will increase shop capacity by a total of 260,000 square feet (sq. ft.) collectively, with expansion of facilities in Cincinnati & Hillsboro, Ohio, and Miami, Florida locations.
Overall investment to fund the expansions exceeds $16 million in construction and capital equipment.
“We are making this commitment to grow our capacity to meet the continued demands of our customers – on both legacy platforms and next generation engines -- as well as to continue to provide the aerospace industry’s best delivery performance for component repair and manufacturing services,” said Rick Stine, President of StandardAero Components, Helicopters & Accessories.
The Cincinnati location expansion will include the build-out of an additional 200,000 sq. ft. of work space to accommodate component repair growth on new platforms, military and commercial engine component repair, as well as larger components.
Miami will add 30,000 sq. ft. of working space and capital improvements including the installation of a state-of-the-art clean line, an additional vacuum furnace as well as water jet cleaning capabilities. As a result, the facility will be able to repair large engine cases.
Hillsboro will be completing a 30,000 sq. ft. expansion to support new OEM manufacturing production, bringing the facility’s total manufacturing footprint to 115,000 square feet of space.
“These expanded capabilities also include dedicated processes for the repair, overhaul and manufacturing of various component types to support our customers’ engine needs,” Stine added.
