During this year’s MRO Americas in Dallas, Texas, Air Transport Components (ATC) has announced plans to establish a new MRO facility in Tulsa, Okla. The company has selected a 60,000 ft² facility located on Historic Route 66. At the Tulsa facility, ATC will offer HVOF thermal spray coatings, grinding, NDT and painting, and plans to expand these offerings in the future. ATC plans to employ 50 staff in Tulsa and will make an overall investment of approximately US$5 million (£4 million) in the building as well as technology and equipment.
“Due to increased volume, new capabilities, and the unique opportunities that the state of Oklahoma provides, ATC decided to expand its strong industry brand into Tulsa,” said Jimmy Newman, CEO, ATC. “The MRO and aerospace workforce in Oklahoma is unmatched and was certainly the deciding factor when looking at expansion options.”
ATC has operated an FAA/EASA Repair Station in Gilbert, Ariz., for more than 20 years. Approved by all major airlines, ATC has a large portfolio of services including repair of airframe, structural and hydraulic components as well completing full landing gear overhauls. This second location will expand capabilities with HVOF thermal spray, grind, NDT, and paint with additional capabilities coming soon.
ATC is a privately-owned company now with over 130,000 ft² to support its valued and strategic customers.Email Post to a Friend
