Flying Colours Expands St. Louis, Missouri, Operations Hub

Flying Colours Corp., a Canadian aircraft interiors supplier, expanded its production facility near St. Louis, Missouri. The company plans to add about 70 new jobs to the region.

The company provides services and makes components for business jets. Its Chesterfield facility near Spirit of St. Louis Airport makes cabinetry and other interior components for the aircraft.

The expanded 100,000 sq. ft. facility, will allow Flying Colours to increase its local production by 600 percent in the first year, and provides space for woodworking production, upholstery, engineering and avionics work, production control offices, conference rooms and client meeting areas.

“This is the first full infrastructure development to take place in St. Louis since we acquired the business in 2009,” said Flying Colours Executive Vice President Sean Gillespie.

“It was needed as demand for our cabinetry and completion skills was outstripping our capacity. The expansion reflects our overall strategic approach to business growth, and we’re not done yet as we anticipate a second phase of development in the USA later in the year,” he added.
