CubCrafters Expanding Facilities, Workforce

Company Says Business Is On A "Steady Pathway Of Growth"

Yakima, Washington based light aircraft designer and manufacturer CubCrafters has announced a major expansion of their FAA certified manufacturing facility, adding 15,000 square feet by leasing a building near the Yakima airport.

The new facility became fully operational December 18th. Located less than a mile from CubCrafters’ existing 25,000 square foot headquarters and main manufacturing facility, the newly occupied building houses a weld shop and Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machine shop. The move frees up space at the main facility for a research and development department, a delivery hanger and an updated, centralized and expanded parts department.

“It’s extremely gratifying to announce this expansion,” says CubCrafters General Manager Randy Lervold. “With our business on a steady pathway of growth, this additional space will improve manufacturing efficiencies and more effectively serve our customers.”

“We’ve needed to do this for a long time” added CubCrafters Owner Jim Richmond, “Our planes are selling well, and if we get even a little help from the economy, we will need to increase our production rate. This will also let us create a dedicated R&D department for the development of future products.” The expansion also creates job opportunities. Openings in several departments have been posted and can be reviewed at the CAREERS link on the company website. (Images provided by CubCrafters)
