After a successful collaboration with the Brevard County Commission and the Titusville City Council, Professional Aircraft Accessories, a Greenwich AeroGroup Company, broke ground in December on a 20,000 square-foot expansion that solidifies the company’s commitment to Titusville and aviation jobs in Brevard County.
“This has truly been a joint effort,” says President of Professional Aircraft Accessories Robert Bial. “We have been in this community since the company was founded in 1997 and the support we have received has been tremendous.”
The expansion is expected to take approximately six months to complete and will accommodate the growth of the company’s landing gear service area, accessory shop, instrument and avionics lab as well as an expanded machine shop and paint shop. The expansion will bring the facility to approximately 57,000 square-feet. Certified General Contractors of Melbourne, Florida will be leading the project.
“PAA’s groundbreaking event represents the culmination of a lot of hard work from the project team and we are honored that the company chose to maintain operations and expand on the Space Coast,” says President and CEO of the Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast Lynda Weatherman. “We look forward to the facility’s completion, as it represents another positive step in the renaissance of Titusville.”
Bial says approximately 50 full-time jobs will be added as part of the growth.
