Janicki Picks Utah For Fighter Jet Parts Plant
The Sedro-Woolley-based engineering firm, whose work includes high-end machining for aerospace manufacturers, is receiving a tax credit of $316,275 over 10 years from the Utah Governor's Office of Economic Development.
It's the first major expansion outside Washington for the family-run company, which employs about 380 people in Skagit County.
About 90 percent of the company's business is in aerospace, with some additional work making wind turbines.
The site is reported to be near Clearfield, where Alliant Techsystems will make carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic-composite wing skins and nacelle skins for the F-35. According to published reports the Janicki operation will machine parts from both the Alliant plant and a similar plant operated by HITCO in Gardena, Calif.
Founded in 1993, Janicki also designs and builds state-of-the-art tooling the large fixtures that aerospace manufacturers, including Boeing, use when fabricating airplane parts. For the Boeing plant in Charleston, S.C., Janicki makes composite plastic molds around which carbon-fiber fabric is wrapped and hardened to form the composite-plastic rear-fuselage sections of the 787 Dreamliner.
