Latitude Aero announces new Washington location
Latitude Aero, is expanding its global reach and opening a new location in Burlington, Washington, north of Seattle. The new facility received its FAA Certification in December and the company expects to start production there February 1.
Latitude Aero is a Greensboro, North Carolina-based aircraft seating overhaul provider that specializes in the integration of inflight entertainment (IFE) and in-seat power (ISPS), to provide economically viable solutions for cabin upgrades. The new shop in the Seattle area will service the OEM customer base on the West Coast and would allow Latitude Aero to provide maintenance and repair to all of North America.
“Our new Burlington shop will create fresh revenue and labor here in Greensboro,” President and CEO Kelvin Boyette. “By operating two facilities, we’re now able to take on larger projects, run production simultaneously, and provide overflow relief for our second location.
“We are working closely with the Skagit County Economic Development team to staff and grow our team in Burlington and the Seattle Region. We hope to welcome 10 to 15 team members who will receive training and professional development.”
