Adam Aircraft to Expand Operations in Pueblo, Colorado
Earlier this month, Adam Aircraft announced its intention to expand operations in Pueblo, Colo., through its A500 and A700 programs. The company feels that the city of Pueblo, with its workforce, airport and facilities, provides a first-rate solution for Adam's long-range growth strategy. Over the course of the next three years, Adam Aircraft anticipates delivering 125 aircraft, each requiring 10,000 person-hours to build.
In a press release, George F. "Rick" Adam, CEO of Adam Aircraft said, "We are committed to staying in Colorado and looked at a number of cities in our state. Many of these sites had airports but none compared to the facilities in Pueblo."
Company officials also claim that Pueblo offered them a very effective program for their expansion. With this proposal, Adam will have immediate access to a 30,000-square-foot manufacturing facility at the Pueblo airport -- which has long, wide runways and a ILS system -- and an on-property building, which is in immediate move-in condition. The city has also provided significant assistance in capital equipment needs for the new plant. Adam Aircraft anticipates being in operation at Pueblo later this month.
