Triumph Group, Inc. held a ribbon-cutting celebration Oct. 6 for the opening of its new Edgerton, Kansas operations from Grandview, Missouri. The move is expected to be complete by June 2017.
Joining Triumph Precision Components Executive Vice President Rick Rosenjack in the ceremony were Kansas Governor Sam Brownback and Edgerton Mayor Donald Roberts.
The new 156,000-square-foot manufacturing plant is located within the Logistics Park Kansas City (LPKC) and was built to accommodate the company’s growth and expanding technologies. The factory is Triumph’s new Small and Medium Parts Center of Excellence, which excels at the machining and assembly of aircraft components made from aluminum and various hard metal alloys. Products include landing gear structure and assemblies, seat/cargo tracks, floor beams, thrust reverser beams, stringer end fittings, wing attach fittings, installation brackets, hinge arm assemblies and engine inlet assemblies.
With the addition of the new facility at LPKC, Triumph now has three factories in Kansas with approximately 500 employees. The other Kansas sites are the Triumph Precision Components facility in Wichita and a Product Support facility in Wellington.
