Goodrich Opens Brea, Calif., Facility
Goodrich this week marked the opening of a new facility in Brea, Calif., part of its Sensors and Integrated Systems business.
The Brea site, which employs approximately 260 people in high tech disciplines including engineering, manufacturing, and administrative function, will provide rescue hoists, cargo winches, digital data systems and in‑flight entertainment products and related services for the aerospace and defense industry. The site will also serve as the business' software center of excellence, providing software design and support to all Sensors and Integrated Systems sites worldwide. The new site combines two former Goodrich facilities in Diamond Bar and Monterey Park, Calif. and has additional space available for future expansion and business growth.
"This new facility represents a business commitment to continuous improvement that will benefit Goodrich customers as well as employees. Our business is growing, and consolidating our two nearby sites into the Brea location allows us to better leverage our talented workforce and other resources to grow our business for years to come," said Mark Skarohlid, vice president and general manager Goodrich Sensors and Integrated Systems.
