Enstrom Helicopter Corp. is planning to double the current size of its Menominee, Mich.-based manufacturing plant to 77,000 square feet. Expansion plans include new sand blast booths for component parts and expanded flight line areas, allowing the company to continue bolstering its workforce, after hiring more 100 new employees since 2011.
The plant is scheduled to produce 32 helicopters in 2013 and 45 in 2014. Enstrom intends to host a groundbreaking ceremony in May, with construction beginning this summer.
