StandardAero Celebrates 30,000-Square-Foot Expansion at Ohio, USA Plant

This press release tells us how Standard Aero has just celebrated the expansion of their facility in Hillsboro, Ohio, USA-what it doesn’t tell us is whether this includes any expansion of their heat treating department. It is certainly possible since their locations in Miami, Florida, Winnipeg, Manitoba and others have substantial vacuum heat treat departments which includes both horizontal and bottom load styles (Ipsen and Vac Aero both come to mind).

“StandardAero Component Services recently celebrated the grand opening of the company’s 30,000-square-foot expansion of its Hillsboro, Ohio engine component manufacturing and engine component repair facility. The additional working space and capital improvements included the building and additional equipment to support aerospace engine low pressure turbine vane manufacturing. The expansion also provides additional space for further growth. Kerry O’Sullivan, Chief Operating Officer of StandardAero, and Rick Stine, President of StandardAero Components, Helicopters & Accessories, joined Mark Greene, Vice President & General Manager of the company’s Hillsboro facility, his leadership team and employees to dedicate the new expansion on Sept. 20. The Hillsboro location expansion completes StandardAero’s current plans for new building and expansion investments, which have also occurred at its Cincinnati, Miami and Kansas City locations over the last 18 months. StandardAero Component Services provides a complete suite of complex, high precision manufacturing capabilities including CNC milling, turning, drilling, grinding (creep feed, CBN & radial), welding (TIG, EB, & resistance), unconventional machining (EDM & SEG), brazing & vacuum heat treatment, thermal spray (APS, HVOF, & Wire), shot peen, inspection (CMM & NDT), and plating (anodize, chrome, cadmium, nickel, etc.). Providing a full suite of capabilities lowers TAT for its aerospace, oil & gas, and military customers.”
