Royal Engineered Composites breaks ground on expansion

Royal Engineered Composites broke ground on an expansion of their manufacturing plant today. The expansion is Phase 1 of 3 expansions planned at Royal. Upon completion of Phase 1, Royal will have added just over 30,000 square feet which will bring their total building to 82,000 square feet. The Phase 1 expansion will house a 12,000 sq. ft. clean room for graphite/epoxy part production and will house Royal's 5 autoclaves. Royal has also created a new parking lot on the west side of the building to accommodate the growth. Royal's equipment purchase list includes a 12' X 30' autoclave, a ply cutting table with conveyor system and is awaiting delivery of a Composite Waterjet Machining Center purchased earlier this year from Flow, Inc.

"This 30,000 square foot high bay building should satisfy our growth needs for the next 5 years. We'll move in equipment the day after it is approved for occupancy" says Phillip Gill, President of Royal Engineered Composites. The Phase 1 expansion is slated for completion in November 2011. The expanded facilities will expand Royal's capabilities to produce larger parts and assemblies and accommodate higher volume contracts.

Royal has been experiencing steady growth for the last 10 years and expects that trend to continue. Jarrod Ridge, Business Development Manager at Royal says, "As more aircraft are being designed or retrofitted to include additional composite content than ever before; the supply chain has become increasingly more important. Our customers are driving our growth based on our dedication to performance and being that stable supplier that allows them to focus on the future."
