KENCOA GROUP, a strategic aerospace holdings company, completed acquisition of Heart of Georgia Metal Crafters, a tier-1 supplier of precision machined and sheet metal fabricated components for the aerospace industry based in Eastman, Georgia.

The company, which plans a major expansion in the Heart of Georgia Regional Airport Industrial Park in Eastman, will now be known as Kencoa Aerospace.

Commenting on the acquisition, Kencoa Aerospace President Jason Premo, said, “As part of Kencoa Group, we are now able to further advance the vision to achieve even greater opportunities for our employees, community, and most importantly our customers. We intend to enhance and expand these relationships by further investing in our people, capabilities and capacity, providing even greater added value and extraordinary service.”

Kencoa Aerospace also collaborated with Georgia Economic Development to explore available incentive programs and has committed to adding 100 new jobs over a four-year period, in addition to $2 Million in capital investment. At the time of this release, the company said it is ahead of schedule, having already hired 16 new employees and installed over $1.6 Million in new advanced manufacturing equipment.

“Kencoa Aerospace has unlocked an incredible opportunity to capitalize on Georgia’s strong manufacturing and aerospace industries”, said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “Aerospace products are the No. 1 export from Georgia, and our leadership position in this sector will help maintain a competitive edge in the global market. I look forward to the success Kencoa will have in Dodge County.”
