Construction Helicopters Expands Operations in Howell Township, Michigan
Construction Helicopters, Inc., CHI Aviation , provides services to the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Forest Service and companies involved in the construction and utility industries. In addition, CHI Aviation has three affiliate organizations under common ownership, including a large sister company headquartered in California that is planning to relocate to Nevada.
The company is experiencing additional growth as a result of recently acquired defense contracts and increasing its aircraft fleet. The expansion involves the purchase of an existing 27,000-square-foot building in Howell Township. As a result, the company has been awarded a $400,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant.
In addition to MSF support, Ann Arbor SPARK has offered marketing assistance and help with finding candidates for the new positions. The company employs 49 people at the existing Michigan facility.
“CHI Aviation’s continued expansion in Michigan means well-paying jobs for Michigan residents and further underscores the strength of the state’s manufacturing industry, in areas including aerospace,” said Jeff Mason, CEO of MEDC, the state’s chief marketing and business attraction agency, responsible for enabling long-term economic opportunity for all Michiganders.“We’re pleased to work with Ann Arbor SPARK and other local partners to support the investment by this longstanding Michigan company, to continue to positively impact the area’s economy,” Mason said.
