Sierra Nevada Corporation will locate two aircraft maintenance repair and overhaul facilities at the Dayton International Airport in Dayton, Ohio. The projects are expected to create roughly 150 jobs.
The new SNC Dayton aviation facility will be capable of supporting some of the largest aviation projects in the world, according to state officials. Construction has already started on the first facility and will continue throughout the year.
“Following a nationwide search to find the location best suited to meet SNC’s growing customer needs, we are excited to continue our expansion in the large aircraft MRO field in Dayton and the Miami Valley,” said Mark Williams, SNC senior vice president strategy. “Dayton’s extensive supply chain, highly skilled workforce, and proven standing as a logistics hub make the Dayton International Airport our first choice to further strengthen the expertise and robust production infrastructure that have made SNC the go-to leader in large aircraft heavy maintenance, modification, and integration markets.”
Sierra Nevada Corporation is an American, privately held aerospace and national security contractor specializing in aircraft modification and integration, space components and systems, and related technology products for cybersecurity and health.
“Sierra Nevada Corporation’s decision to expand its aircraft modernization and maintenance business in Ohio is even more evidence that Ohio is excelling in a COVID-calibrated economy,” said J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio president and CEO. “SNC’s new Ohio operations will make it the first private-sector company to do maintenance, repair, and modification work on military craft in Dayton since the World War II era. This shows that Ohio’s and JobsOhio’s focus on the military and federal sector is making a big difference.”
“Sierra Nevada Corporation's selection of the Dayton Airport for their aircraft maintenance repair and overhaul brings together our region’s many aviation strengths,” said Dayton Development Coalition President and CEO Jeff Hoagland. “From research and development to maintenance and manufacturing, Dayton can provide the expertise and resources for SNC to grow their presence here in the region.”
