Applied Aerospace Structures Corporation (AASC), a leading manufacturer specializing in lightweight structures for the aerospace industry, announced plans to expand manufacturing operations slated to begin this month. The expansion includes construction of a new 61,150 square foot high-bay manufacturing building to handle the company’s strategic growth plans.
“We have established a solid foundation of recurring business and have identified opportunities and positioned ourselves well for continued growth which has driven us to add this new building,” said John Rule, President/Chief Executive Officer at AASC. “This is an exciting time for the company and we look forward to growing our family and strengthening the local economy with this expansion.”
The new building (Building 9) will include a high-bay assembly area serviced by a bridge crane, two (2) segregated layup/assembly rooms and a separate warehouse space easily converted to manufacturing space as the business grows. It will be fully contiguous with existing facilities. This addition increases AASC’s total square footage by over 20 percent to 332,750 square feet. AASC has designs and permits in place and begins foundation work in early July. The building is expected to be complete by January 2018.
