1st Choice Aerospace Expands Its Miramar, Florida, Production Hub

A company specializes in repairing pneumatics, crew seats, O2, fuel, cargo, and waste systems for commercial, cargo, and military aircrafts, 1st Choice Aerospace’s plans to expand its operations hub in Miramar, Florida. The company will create 40 new jobs in Broward County.

1st Choice Aerospace also plans to make a capital investment of more than $7 million in the local community. Chris Yeazel, Owner, 1st Choice Aerospace said, “We are extremely excited to announce our expansion plans in Miramar, Florida. We are pleased with the additional capacity and global outreach that this strategic location will afford us, allowing us to further accommodate our customers’ needs and execute on them. With the business friendly atmosphere and the aviation talent available in South Florida, we are poised for significant growth over the next 36 months.”

Enterprise Florida President/CEO Bill Johnson said, “Florida is a leader in the aviation and aerospace industry thanks to Governor Scott’s leadership. Florida is #1 for aviation manufacturing attractiveness, #1 for aviation and aerospace manufacturing workforce, and #2 in aviation, aerospace, and space establishments. Companies like 1st Choice Aerospace are expanding and helping to grow Florida’s strong aviation and aerospace industry.”

Governor Rick Scott said, “While 1st Choice Aerospace had the opportunity to expand in Kentucky, they ultimately chose Florida as the best place to grow their business. As a right-to-work state with zero personal income tax and low corporate tax rates, it is clear why 1st Choice picked Florida over Kentucky. I look forward to meeting with more companies today and tomorrow to encourage them to move and expand in Florida.”

The project was made possible through strong partnerships between Enterprise Florida, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Broward County, the City of Miramar, and the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance.

Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Executive Director Jesse Panuccio said, “With the expansion of 1st Choice Aerospace, Broward County continues its impressive streak of job growth and economic diversification. Small businesses are the backbone of Florida’s economy and the Scott Administration supports an economic climate in which they can thrive.”
