April 7, 2015 – StandardAero is making multi-million dollar investments at its component repair facilities in Winnipeg, Canada, and adding capabilities to its plating line. As a result of these investments, StandardAero will provide additional stripping and plating processes for chrome, electroless nickel, sulfamate nickel (hard and soft), cadmium (bright and non-bright), silver, copper and tin plating for aerospace parts and components.
In addition, the company is increasing the square footage of its Winnipeg shop, adding “a significant number” of tanks, optimizing product flow, using monitoring systems for improved process control, and installing a dedicated R&D line. These improvements are designed to reduce the time it takes to develop new repairs and plating processes for customers. Moreover, the expanded and redesigned facility will exceed all necessary environmental requirements and provide an extremely safe working environment.
The expansion and improvements in the facility are expected to be fully completed by September of this year. The Winnipeg shop will support other StandardAero and customer MRO facilities around the world.
