StandardAero Makes Multi-Million Dollar Investments for In-House Plating Capabilities and Component Repair Infrastructure Improvements

Scottsdale, Ariz. – April 7, 2015 – StandardAero is making multi-million dollar investments at its component repair facilities in Winnipeg, Canada, and adding significant capabilities to its plating line. These operational upgrades will enhance customer services in the company’s already world-class facility.

As a result of these investments, StandardAero will provide additional stripping and plating processes for chrome, electroless nickel, sulfamate nickel (hard & soft), cadmium (bright & non-bright), silver, copper and tin plating for aerospace parts and components.

In addition, the company is increasing the square footage of its Winnipeg shop, adding a significant number of tanks, optimizing product flow, using monitoring systems for improved process control and installing a dedicated R&D line. These improvements are designed to reduce the time it takes to develop new repairs and plating processes for customers. Moreover, the expanded and redesigned facility will exceed all necessary environmental requirements and provide an extremely safe working environment.

“In-house plating provides a great deal of benefits for components customers,” said Manny Atwal, Vice President of StandardAero Components Canada. “Our customers demand quality, turn-time, and price. With investments like this, we are certain to deliver.”

The expansion and improvements in the facility are expected to be fully completed by September of this year. The Winnipeg shop will support other StandardAero and customer MRO facilities around the world.
