Londonderry aircraft repair firm wins contract with Air Wisconsin
This week, AeroRepair Corp, located at 14 Tinker Ave., announced its award of a five-year contract to provide wheel and tire support for the Appleton, Wisc.-based airline’s major hubs and maintenance bases: located in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Charlotte, N.C., Milwaukee, Norfolk, Va., Columbia, S.C., and Hot Springs, Ark.
The company, which specializes in the repair and overhaul of aircraft brakes, wheels, landing gear and mechanical actuators for commercial, regional airliners, general aviation and corporate aircraft, already holds a contract with Air Wisconsin for brake repairs and overhaul.
“This award is a great credit to the men and women of AeroRepair, their performance and our reputation,” Bell added.
Company founders Al Sproul and Dave Webber started out in a local basement, where the two men initially concentrated on maintaining lesser aircrafts in transition and parts trading.
In 2012 the Weinberg & Bell Group of Cleveland, Ohio, acquired the company.
These days, AeroRepair has about 26 employees working in Londonderry, though Allen said the plan is to hire 11 more workers in the coming months to accommodate the contract’s additional workload.
“It’s exciting to see another Londonderry-based business expanding operations and adding jobs as a result,” Smith said on Wednesday. “The land around the airport and the variety of industries located on it continues to be one of our town’s greatest assets.”
