TAT Piedmont Aviation Expands Greensboro, North Carolina, MRO Hub

TAT Piedmont Aviation, an aviation maintenance, repair, and overhaul company, plans to increase the service capacity of its facilities near the Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro, North Carolina. The $12.8 million project is expected to create 85 jobs in Guilford County.

The investment will include test equipment, production tooling, and new machinery.

“With our extensive history in North Carolina and especially Greensboro we are excited to be able to announce our next growth initiative here in 2023,” said Marty Cervellione, General Manager of TAT Piedmont Aviation. “With our new APU MRO capabilities and state of the art test facility we are very optimistic for the future growth of our footprint in this area.”

As an incentive, a performance-based grant of $200,000 from the One North Carolina Fund will help facilitate the expansion. The OneNC Fund provides financial assistance to local governments to help attract economic investment and to create jobs. Companies receive no money upfront and must meet job creation and capital investment targets to qualify for payment. All OneNC grants require a matching grant from local governments and any award is contingent upon that condition being met.

“The world’s aviation and aerospace companies have Greensboro and the Piedmont Triad squarely on their radar,” noted North Carolina Commerce Secretary Machelle Baker Sanders. “We’re enjoying momentum with this industry because companies like TAT Piedmont Aviation recognize and appreciate both our existing workforce and the state’s commitment to keep our talent pipeline strong for their industry.”

TAT Piedmont Aviation, a subsidiary of TAT Technologies, specializes in MRO services for Auxiliary Power Units (APUs), landing gears, and Machining and Plating (MPG).

Partnering with the North Carolina Department of Commerce and the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina (EDPNC) on this project were the North Carolina General Assembly, the North Carolina Community College System, Duke Energy, Guilford Technical Community College, Guilford County, the City of Greensboro, the Guilford County Economic Development Alliance and the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce.
