Posted: 2017 Jul 13
 
Spirit AeroSystems will create a 3- and 4-axis machining center of excellence at its McAlester, Okla., facility, which will accommodate new detailed parts fabrication work in the global aerostructures market, while also supporting current customer contracts.
 
The new center is expected to be fully operational later this year and will specialise in small- to medium-sized parts. 
 
"The McAlester center of excellence solidifies Spirit as a world leader in the fabrication of detailed parts for the aerospace industry," said Spirit President & CEO Tom Gentile. "Spirit has decades of experience doing this type of work for use internally. Now we can deliver that expertise to other customers around the globe."
 
Spirit acquired18 new machines to create soft metal machining capacity as part of a U.S.-based center of excellence, which will be in addition to the creation of a 5-axis center of excellence in Wichita and the planned expansion of operations in Malaysia.
 
More than 1,000 unique parts have already been scoped and are in process of being scheduled for production.
"We will be able to offer significant capability at very competitive prices due to the productivity of the new center of excellence," said Spirit Senior Vice President of Operations Ron Rabe. "We look forward to continuing to grow our business by being a world class provider of fabricated parts."
 
Spirit is already one of the largest aircraft part fabricators for the aerospace industry.
