C&L Aerospace to expand its facility at Bangor airport, add 70 jobs
C&L Aerospace is set to move forward on an expansion project at Bangor International Airport that will create up to 70 jobs, of which 17 will be aircraft mechanics.
The airport received a $580,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration for infrastructure improvements that will help the aircraft maintenance company to expand, according to the Bangor Daily News.
The grant will allow the airport to update a hangar that connects to an aircraft painting facility, make improvements to its boiler room, and install some new handling and water pretreatment equipment, the article states.
In addition to the grant funds, C&L is spending $3 million to build an office facility to connect two leased hangars and lease other buildings, allowing it to increase its workforce by between 50 and 70 employees.
Company officials told the newspaper that the city has been willing to take necessary steps at the airport to help with its expansion.
The company, headquartered in Bangor with offices in Australia and Europe, provides maintenance service to commercial and military aviation sectors.
