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
