Magellan Aerospace is going to construct a massive 140,000 sq. ft. building in the Aerospace Special Economic Zone near the Bangalore International Airport in India.
Magellan Aerospace is a global aerospace company that provides complex assemblies and systems solutions to aircraft and engine manufacturers, and defence and space agencies worldwide. The company will invest more than CDN $28 million in this state-of-the-art manufacturing and assembly plant and is expecting to break ground as early as June 2017. The facility will be built on seven acres of land and will be constructed in three phases.
According to Magellan Aerospace, the first phase of the construction will employ approximately 120 engineers, machinists, procurement professionals, and quality and management personnel and be equipped with a full suite of 5-axis machining centres.
Mr. Phillip Underwood, President and Chief Executive Office of Magellan Aerospace said, “Magellan’s expanding footprint in India, and increasing spectrum of capabilities, reflects the company’s commitment to provide competitive solutions for major commercial customers.”
The new manufacturing and assembly facility will enable Magellan to support the production of larger work packages for major structural assemblies, fabrications, and machined components for the global market.
Magellan designs, engineers, and manufactures aeroengine and aerostructure assemblies and components for aerospace markets, advanced products for military and space markets, industrial power generation, and specialty products.
