Goodrich breaks ground on a new purpose-built facility in Rzeszow, Poland

Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) has commenced site preparation activities at a new 13-acre site in Rzeszow, Poland. The site was acquired in 2008 and is conveniently located adjacent to Rzeszow's international airport in the heart of Poland's Aviation Valley.

Goodrich is constructing a new manufacturing facility at the site which initially will support its Landing Gear business and potentially other Goodrich businesses in the future. Representing an investment of more than US$50 million, the facility will employ approximately 250 people. Production work is expected to start in the second quarter of 2012.

The new facility will be Goodrich's second in Poland. Its existing facility in Krosno manufactures and assembles landing gear parts for many commercial and military customers including Airbus, Boeing, Gulfstream and Lockheed Martin. Established as a joint venture nearly 15 years ago, the Krosno facility became wholly owned by Goodrich in 2001 and now employs over 400 people.

Jack Carmola, Segment President for Actuation and Landing Systems at Goodrich, said, "Goodrich's new facility in Rzeszow will almost double the size of Goodrich's footprint in Poland. This very significant investment is made in recognition of the hard work and dedication of the workforce in our existing Landing Gear facility in Krosno, and of the success of that facility."
