Enstrom Helicopter Corporation expansion project

Enstrom Helicopter Corporation recently announced plans for expansion of its Menominee Michigan plant. The company has chosen Moyle Construction out of Houghton, Michigan to be the design-builder for the project. Other Moyle Construction projects in the local area have included the Country Inn & Suites in Marinette, WI and The Harbors in Menominee, MI. Enstrom's expansion will double the current size of the facility, adding over 77,000 sq. ft. The expansion will also allow Enstrom to continue their hiring, which has added over 100 new employees within the past 18 months.

The expansion plans include installing new paint, gel coat, and sand blast booths for component parts, as well as expanded manufacturing and flight line areas. The parking lots will be paved as well. The building will expand to the north and the west. A second floor mezzanine will be built to house the engineering department.

“We're very excited about the expansion,” said President and CEO, Jerry Mullins. “We're extremely happy to have an owner that is willing to invest in helping Enstrom grow. This is great for Enstrom and for the community. We appreciate the support the community has shown for this project.”

The expansion will help make Enstrom Helicopter more efficient in the manufacturing and assembly of the helicopters. Enstrom has 32 helicopters planned for 2013, and 45 for 2014. Sales are projected to increase to 100 per year within the next several years, and the space is needed for these rates, as well as the additional employees.

The company plans to have a ground-breaking ceremony in May, with construction to begin shortly after the ground-breaking.
