ARINC Engineering Services, LLC today announced plans to build a new 62,000 square foot hangar to increase capacity for aircraft servicing at its Aircraft Modification and Operations Center (AMOC) in Oklahoma City, OK. ARINC plans to break ground in January.
The company’s current facility includes a 50,000 square foot commercial hangar—the largest in the area—as well as 30,000 feet of shops and administrative offices. Adding the new hangar will more than double the facility’s hangar capacity.
“When ARINC’s new hangar is operational by June 2011, our site capacity will be nine large aircraft, including space for four aircraft on the ramps,” said Mike Young, Vice President, Aerospace Engineering Systems & Support. “We clearly need the additional capacity to remain competitive in this active marketplace. The work that will be accomplished at our expanded aircraft modification facility will create between 150 and 200 new high-paying jobs in the Oklahoma City area over the next couple of years.”
