Latitude Aero expands to larger facility, capacity
Latitude Aero in Greensboro, North Carolina, is doubling size and capacity of production. The new facility expects to become fully operational, adding EASA certification in mid-December.
The 100,000 square foot facility is located in the same industrial park as the company’s current headquarters at Air Park North, adjacent to Piedmont Triad Airport. The increased storage and manufacturing space is climate controlled, and will make room for a machine shop for OEM fabrication and a sewing studio for custom seat refurbishment all under one roof.
“Our new headquarters will create fresh revenue and labor here in the area,” said President and CEO Kelvin Boyette in today's announcement. “By operating a facility roughly double the size of our current operation, we’re now able to take on larger projects, run production simultaneously, and provide new capabilities to our clients.”
Latitude Aero will be looking to hire 15 to 20 positions in the next 120 days. Positions will include sewing specialists, CNC operators, machinists, and additional seating technicians to handle the increased volume.
Latitude Aero is an 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 of any scope. The new shop in the Seattle Region will service the OEM customer base on the West Coast and will allow the company to provide maintenance and repair to all of North America.
