Aircraft Solutions USA, Inc. says it is moving forward with a building a $100 million aircraft recycling structure at Global TransPark in Kinston.
“The construction start has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the facility is still slated to be operational by the second quarter of 202,” the recycler says. “It will consist of one of the world’s largest hangars which will include dismantling, MRO and painting operations.”
“We are making some critical hires, including our interim CEO and our Head of Innovations, and are looking to start construction this summer,” general manager Sven Daniel Koechler said in a statement.
“Our state’s aerospace industry is taking off with the Global TransPark as a hub in rural eastern North Carolina,” said Gov. Roy Cooper. “From first in flight to first in skilled workers, global companies like Aircraft Solutions USA will find North Carolina to be a great place to grow and thrive.”
Once operational, Aircraft Solutions USA’s Kinston facility will recycle decommissioned commercial and military aircraft deploying a proprietary new recycling technology. This will enable the company to recycle many more aircraft each year than conventional methods enable.
“With our proprietary recycling technology, we can recycle many more aircraft per year; for instance, up to 70 additional twin-engine narrow body airliners,” said Koechler.
The Aircraft Solutions USA project will bring nearly $958 million to North Carolina’s economy. It is being partially facilitated by a Job Development Investment Grant (JDIG) approved by the State’s Economic Investment Committee.
