StandardAero Component Services announced a significant investment and expansion at three of its U.S. sites during 2018. The company will invest approximately $16 million to increase shop capacity by 260,000 square feet collectively at facilities in Cincinnati and Hillsboro, Ohio, and Miami, Fla. The Miami site will add 30,000 square feet of working space and install an additional vacuum furnace, a state-of-the-art clean line and add water-jet cleaning capabilities. As a result, the facility will be able to repair large engine cases.
Cincinnati will build out an additional 200,000 square feet of work space to accommodate military and commercial engine component repair. Hillsboro will complete a 30,000-square-foot expansion to support new OEM manufacturing production, bringing the facility’s total manufacturing footprint to 115,000 square feet.
According to StandardAero Component Services, the expanded capabilities also include dedicated processes for the repair, overhaul and manufacturing of various component types to support customers’ engine needs.
