MGR, the American division of business jet parts manufacturer MSB Global Resources, has begun a growth plan in Wichita, KS, which will see them expand office size and employee numbers.
The Montreal-headquartered company has moved its Wichita facility to a 4,500 sq ft location and plans to recruit 30 new aerospace engineers by the end of the summer.
“The strong economy, the growth in aerospace as an industry and the seemingly diminishing number of aerospace engineers are all factors that have inspired us to become creative as hiring gets more challenging,” said Gemma Dendurent, Director of Operations, MGR.
“We are utilizing our network to find talent with the desired qualifications, as well as training new engineers to understand interiors. Recruits are not just from aviation but from the automotive industry too. Our expertise lies in finding and building talented teams to support our customers, and the industry at large.”
MGR provides specialised and general aerospace engineering services to support OEMs, maintenance, refurbishment and completion centres.
It recently signed a contract with an undisclosed North American customer for a major interiors contract, which was the catalyst for its American expansion.
The 30 new aerospace engineers will work on no only the latest contract, but also complement the existing MGR workforce in various locations throughout the United States including Indiana, Washington and California.
