Able Aerospace expands headquarters at Mesa Gateway Airport
PHOENIX — An East Valley aerospace company has expanded and intends to bring new jobs to its headquarters at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.
Able Aerospace Services added 60,000 square feet to its existing 200,000-square-foot campus, according to a press release.
The $9 million expansion, which was unveiled last week, is expected to bring an additional 100 jobs for licensed airframe and powerplant mechanics over the next two years.
“We are proud that Able Aerospace Services has expanded in southeast Mesa,” Mesa Mayor John Giles said in the release. “They are an exceptional business leader in aerospace maintenance, repair and overhaul for both military and civilian aircraft, and it has been exciting to watch their number of high-quality jobs grow since moving to the Gateway area.”
The expansion will allow the company to incorporate new technology into its aircraft component repair and overhaul process.
New product and service offerings will also be part of the expansion, according to the release.
Able, which supplies replacement parts and completion services, relocated its headquarters to Mesa from Phoenix in 2013.
