Collins Aerospace has broken ground on an expansion of its cargo systems facility in Jamestown, North Dakota. The 20,000-square-foot addition is the first of a four-phase expansion plan to modernize operations, add needed manufacturing space and best position the facility to meet both current and increasing processing needs.

The current 20,000-square-foot facility is a leading supplier of powered cargo systems for commercial widebody aircraft and an innovative solutions provider for military aircraft, including the Collins cargo on/off loading system (COOLS) for the Boeing CH-47 Chinook helicopter.

The Jamestown expansion includes space for new state-of-the-art chemical processing and paint lines designed to maximize operational efficiency, improve site ergonomics and provide customers with expedited delivery schedules. The chemical processing line will grow to include eight to ten additional tanks, expanding the internal parts processing capabilities of the facility.

The first phase of the Jamestown facility expansion is expected to be completed by May 2023, with the entire project to be completed by 2027.
