Aeromax Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer of parts and assemblies for military aircraft, is relocating its headquarters from Canoga Park, California to Aledo Industrial Park in metro Fort Worth, Texas.
The company leased a 12,000 square foot facility in the Aledo Industrial Park in Tarrant County off I-20 and Markum Ranch Road, and will be relocating here by September 2019. Operations will include management, shipping and receiving, engineering, marketing and administrative.
With more than 30 years of technical experience in advanced manufacturing, Aeromax supports various manufacturing and spares programs for international governments, overhaul facilities, licensees, and trading companies worldwide, according to The Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce. Areas of expertise include out-of-production aircraft like Lockheed Martin’s F-16, Northrop’s F-5 and T-38, Bell’s Sikorsky UH-60 and GE’s J-85 jet engine.
“After looking at a few other locations, Fort Worth made perfect sense for us,” said Tom Brizes, Chairman & President of Aeromax. “It’s an aerospace-friendly community with many local companies that we’ve been doing business with for years. With no state income tax and reasonable fuel and property prices, we look forward to moving and growing our operation here.”
“When the Chamber received a call from Aeromax, we knew we could find a home for them that is close to their industry peers and provides a trained aerospace workforce for future growth,” said Chris Strayer, Senior Vice President of Business Attraction, Retention and Expansion. “ The Chamber worked with the company on real estate, workforce and market validation.
