StandardAero has completed a 30,000-sq-ft expansion at its Hillsboro, Ohio engine component manufacturing and repair facility.
The opening finalises an 18-month-long, $16 million project that included expansion of StandardAero facilities in Cincinnati, Miami, and Kansas City, the Arizona-based MRO provider announced this week.
“We are very pleased to complete this expansion to create the additional capacity that is necessary to meet our growing customer demands for engine component manufacturing and component repairs,” said Mark Greene, v-p and general manager of StandardAero’s Hillsboro facility.
“Our dedicated employees have set the standards for quality and delivery. This expansion is a direct result of their commitment to excellence.”
Additional space and equipment at Hillsboro will support its aerospace engine low-pressure turbine vane manufacturing operation, as well as offer room for further growth.
Also attending the grand opening were StandardAero chief operating officer Kerry O’Sullivan and StandardAero Components, Helicopters, & Accessories president Rick Stine.
