Gamma Aerospace has completed a $10 million expansion of service offerings at its Mansfield, Texas operation and its Rapid Anodizing facility located in Los Angeles, California.
Headquartered in Mansfield, Texas, Gamma Aerospace is a specialized, end-to-end provider of engineered airframe and flight components for leading original equipment manufacturers and Tier I suppliers in the aerospace and defense industries.
The capital investment augments existing processes at the Mansfield and the Rapid Anodizing operations, which include machining, forming, heat treating and assembly of aerospace components. The new investment funded expansion into a range of advanced special processing capabilities that include anodizing, priming/painting, chemical conversion coating and fluorescent penetrant inspection.
The new in-house, premium quality special processing services make Gamma Aerospace a total solutions provider: capable of taking in sheet or plate metal, performing all specified processing, producing finished aerospace components, and providing these services in record turnaround times for the aerospace industry.
“The capital infusion into our Mansfield and Rapid Anodizing operations is a breakthrough in the continued transformation of our company, with the expanded service offerings making Gamma Aerospace a total solutions provider,” said Thomas C. Hutton, Chief Executive Officer, Gamma Aerospace. “We are singular in providing—in one network and often under one roof—processes that are end-to-end, up to and including five-axis machining, forming, wet chemical special processing, and heat treatment.”
Gamma Aerospace serves military and commercial customers including Collins Aerospace, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Bell Helicopter, Triumph Group, Inc., Spirit Aerosystems, Northrup Grumman and L3 Technologies. The company’s operations are Nadcap (National Association of Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) certified for heat treating and chemical processing.
