Kaman Aerospace Establishes New Engineering Services Office in Charleston, SC

New Offices Located On Clemson University Restoration Institute Campus

Kaman Engineering Services, has opened a new office at the Clemson University Restoration Institute Campus (CURI) in North Charleston, SC.

Saying it recognizes the growing aerospace requirements in the Southeast US, the new regional office will support that demand, according to Jim Larwood, President of Kaman Aerosystems. “Kaman Engineering Services provides a unique, high-level engineering skill set and competency that aligns with the needs of Boeing SC’s operation,” Larwood said. “This investment is one of several investments in Kaman’s strategy of geographic diversification, and we are pleased to be part of the growing research and development community in the Charleston region.”

Kaman has already been awarded a purchase order to utilize its extensive experience working with Boeing’s 787 program structures team to support production of the 787 Dreamliner in the role of Stress Liaison. In addition to the opening of the Clemson office, a select team of Kaman employees will be co-located near Boeing’s North Charleston production facility, with additional support staff in Everett, Wash. “Kaman’s on-site teams will include lead engineers to provide the greatest impact of the co-location and support the Boeing engineering teams,” said Cliff Ward, General Manager of Kaman Engineering Services.

Kaman also has the full support and backing of North Charleston’s Mayor Keith Summey. “I am honored to welcome Kaman Engineering Services to the City of North Charleston. We commit to Kaman and to our expanding aerospace and engineering sectors that our community will remain business friendly. Significant capital investments and increased opportunities for quality new jobs, as Kaman is providing, continue to strengthen our city,” said Mayor Summey. In addition, Nikolaos Rigas, CURI Executive Director commented, "We are delighted to welcome another innovative company to Clemson University’s graduate campus in the Charleston region. Our campus is built on a foundation of applied research and public-private partnerships, and Kaman’s diversified portfolio makes this leading aerospace and industrial distribution company an ideal new partner.”

“The Aerospace sector is a major driver for our state’s economy," said Gov. Nikki Haley. "Seeing Boeing suppliers like Kaman Engineering Services opening new offices in South Carolina speaks volumes for our economic future and we celebrate with them as they establish their new office in Charleston County.”

Kaman Engineering Services was presented with a Boeing Supplier of the Year award for its exceptional performance and contributions to Boeing’s overall success during 2012.
