StandardAero Component Services has opened a new 206,000 sq. ft. repair facility, adjacent to its current 236,000 sq. ft. component repair facility in Cincinnati.
The new facility will accommodate component repair growth on new and legacy platforms, aeroderivative, military and commercial aircraft engine component repair, as well as larger components. StandardAero CEO, Russell Ford and Rick Stine, President of StandardAero Components, Helicopters & Accessories, were among those who attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
“As new engine platforms are launched and legacy fleets are still maintained, the entire industry is seeing tremendous growth,” said Stine. “Demand for component repair has increased so we are stepping up to directly support our customers and address the continued and rapid need for more component repair capacity.”
Once fully operational, StandardAero expects to employ 200-300 new technicians to continue to meet the growing demands of customers over the next 12-18 months. This year itself, StandardAero also increased shop capacity by an additional 60,000 sq. ft. with expansions of its facilities in Hillsboro, Ohio and Miami locations.
StandardAero Component Services offers a comprehensive, One-Stop-Shop of repair and overhaul capabilities to provide industry leading turnaround times and meet customers’ repair requirements. Some of the company’s major process capabilities include cleaning, NDT and inspection; cold spray; thermal spray and coating; plating; welding/brazing and heat treatment; painting, stripping and surface prep; manual and CNC machining; and extensive composite capabilities.
