Able Aerospace in Mesa, a company that repairs parts for airlines all over the world, is expanding their operation.
It began as a company that would help repair parts for small business jets and helicopters. Now, they’ve grown into an international operation.
“We support airlines all over the world from Asia Pacific to Europe to Africa and domestic airlines,” said Michael Vercio, the general manager of Able Aerospace.
Instead of replacing a part, an engineer will repair it.
“We provide a lot of repairs for parts on those helicopters and aircraft that allow us to keep the cost down for customers,” Vercio said.
They fix parts for helicopters, Boeing 747’s and even the U.S. government. The need for their work continues to grow.
To meet their demand, Able Aerospace added on a $9 million, 50,000 square foot building addition and hired many additional engineers.
They currently have over 450 employees. Over the next several years, they plan to add over 200 more jobs to their fast-growing operation.
“When it comes to growing Able, we are very excited about it,” Vercio said.
The facility is backed up to the Gateway airport, and they are located next to other aerospace companies. This gives them valuable feedback, which they say is part of their success. Because of this proximity to others, they are attracting the best in the business right in Mesa.
