Turbomeca to Expand Parts Production in U.S.
Look for Turbomeca to open a new parts-production plant in the Midwest United States soon, to help it meet worldwide demand for engines. The new plant would be roughly the same size as Turbomeca USA’s engine production and repair facility in Grand Prairie, Texas but would focus solely on parts production. The French engine maker, a subsidiary of Safran Group, expects to produce up to 2,000 engines a year and is exhausting the ability of its current production facilities to provide parts.
