Not Resting On Their Laurels, They've Broken Ground On A New
Hangar And Paint Facility
Summit Aviation celebrated their 50th anniversary by breaking
ground Wednesday on a new 78,000 square-foot expansion on its
550-acre site. The new project includes a 37,400 square-foot hangar
that can accommodate eight Boeing CH-47 Chinooks or three Bell
Boeing V-22 Ospreys.
Summit Aviation President Robert Fitzpatrick and Greenwich
AeroGroup President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Ziegler were
joined at the groundbreaking by Delaware Governor Jack Markell, New
Castle County Executive Christopher Coons and Secretary Alan Levin
of the Delaware Economic Development Office.
Summit’s parent company Greenwich AeroGroup, has invested
$12 million in capital since acquiring the facility in 2008, this
includes a $1.36 million performance- based grant from the Delaware
Strategic Fund to help the company expand the site and add up to
188 new jobs over a three-year time period.
The expansion is expected to be complete in the second quarter
of 2011 and will include, in addition to the hangar, a 9,200
square-foot paint facility; two cold storage units and an
additional 11,400 square-feet of support and office space. This
growth will increase Summit’s service and maintenance
capacity and support for government and military aviation, general
aviation and corporate segments.
