pic_2Jan. 28, 2009, Goderich, Ont. – Goderich Aircraft Inc., the Huron Park headquartered international luxury aircraft refurbishment business is strengthening its competitive position in the VIP conversion business sector.

GAI has developed a reputation of excellence within the North American aviation industry and is expanding their client base further in the global market. Over the past 15 years of business Goderich Aircraft has grown from an operation of five employees located in Brantford Ontario to a Corporation that employs over 130 skilled craftsmen, engineers, trades persons and apprentices drawn from all over Canada.

Growing into the global market required additional hangar facilities to meet our present and future demand. Goderich Aircraft broke ground on a new 43,000 square foot facility in September of 2008 that will have the capability to accommodate two Boeing Business Jets and the required back shops for Heavy Maintenance, modification and installation of Structures, Avionics and Interior Refurbishment.  .  

Andy Orr, Goderich Aircraft Inc’s Vice President of Sales explained “the extremely high demand for additional VIP refurbishment slots at our current facility drove the decision making process.”     

“We will move into the hangar on March 20th 2009 with an additional 70 to 80 jobs created prior to the completion of the expansion.  The new hangar will house a stunning customer lounge, conference facilities, executive office suites, an interior design center and customer comfort facilities.”

The hangar progress is on target to meet the March 20, 2009 completion date. Final design modifications are in progress and all of the most up-to-date materials are being used. Having the foresight to be able to plan for our slated projects will make this one of the most dynamic facilities in Canada.
