Titeflex Aerospace Facility Expansion

Titeflex Aerospace Facility Expansion

Titeflex Aerospace is pleased to announce plans to enlarge its facility footprint by nearly 47,000 square feet in Laconia, NH. The expansion will consolidate all OEM production activity onto one site and provide much needed space for expansion and improvements to process flows. Groundbreaking for the site expansion will begin in June 2015 with construction complete in Q1 of 2016 and initial equipment moves scheduled for Q2 of 2016.

The site expansion and resulting process reconfiguration of the facility will allow Titeflex to expand capacity to support its position on the many growth platforms on which it has won content over the last few years. According to General Manager, Graham Thomson, “The project gives us a unique opportunity to build improved process flows into our operations and provide a solid foundation for the future growth of the business”

A key concern for Smiths Group, the parent company, and Titeflex Aerospace is continuing to reduce the environmental impact while increasing renewable energy resources. There is a focus on the integration of best practice environmental considerations into current and future operations. One of the key features of the new space will be a sizable reduction in energy and waste, with the intention to cut water discharge to zero over time through a state of the art recycling process. Other green initiatives include high efficiency lighting and utilization of natural light with more exterior windows.

The parking lot will also feature a surface with porous pavement, over aggregate layering to filter water run-off and to reduce the risk of flooding in the surrounding area. This move has been highly praised by the local planning authorities.

Titeflex Aerospace is dedicated to continuing to support the needs of the aerospace industry with this strong commitment to the future. Follow all the latest Titeflex Aerospace news, including progress on the building at www.titeflex.com/aerospace/ or www.facebook.com/titeflexaerospace
