SCAPPOOSE, Ore. — Oregon Aero is expanding, with a new 22,000-square-foot facility at Scappoose Industrial Airpark expected to be operational later this spring.
“It’s coming along nicely, and it’s just exciting to think about how it will really enhance what we do for all of our customers,” said Tony Erickson, Chief Operating Officer for Oregon Aero. “The construction team at JH Kelly has done a great job, and we’re pleased to see the project moving forward as planned.”
The $1.5 million hangar and office space, financed by the state of Oregon and the Port of St. Helens, will house operations for the development and manufacturing of Oregon Aero’s aviation seating systems and aircraft interior upgrades.
When it’s completed later this spring, the new building will nearly double Oregon Aero’s overall square footage to approximately 50,000 square feet. In addition to increased production capacity, the facility will allow Oregon Aero to consolidate all of its operations at the Scappoose Industrial Airpark, including its engineering department and machine shop, which are currently located in the nearby town of St. Helens.
The building also will accommodate a wide range of fixed wing and rotor wing aircraft and house the company’s FAA-approved Repair Station, customer service department and a conference room.
