CHANDLER, AZ – H.E.R.O.S. Inc., an industry leader in repairing and overhauling helicopter engines in Santa Clarita, is relocating its headquarters to Chandler, Ariz. The company will occupy nearly 19,000-square-feet of industrial space at 10 Chandler, located at 560 N. 54th St. H.E.R.O.S. Inc. plans to create 25 new jobs in the Chandler community and expects to be fully operational by the winter of 2019.

“Over the past year, we’ve explored several buildings and opportunities. In the end, we found our home in Chandler. The City of Chandler provides excellent business opportunities and has a deep footprint of aviation industries,” says Raffi Kajberouni, vice president at H.E.R.O.S. Inc. “We’re excited to be part of that elite group of businesses that are succeeding in Chandler!”

“We are happy to welcome H.E.R.O.S. to the West Chandler employment corridor and our thriving business community,” stated Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke. “They will have access to a talented workforce and we wish them many years of success in Chandler.”

Kajberouni touted Arizona’s talent pipeline, favorable tax rates and low operational costs as reasons that persuaded the company to leave Santa Clarita after more than 30 years in the market. With significant cost savings, moving its headquarters to Chandler allows the company to efficiently scale and enhance operations, while still being accessible and committed to its broad customer base.

“The aerospace industry has been a cornerstone of the Greater Phoenix economy for decades,” says Chris Camacho, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council. “While H.E.R.O.S Inc. started in California in 1988, the rest of their success story will be told in Greater Phoenix, and we’re excited to support their continued growth.”

Since its founding, H.E.R.O.S. Inc. has specialized in the repair, service and testing of helicopter engines, specifically the Rolls Royce Model 250. With its relocation to West Chandler’s employment corridor, the company will join other notable local employers in the aerospace and aviation industry like AvAir, TurbineAero and Northrop Grumman.

“H.E.R.O.S Inc.’s selection of Arizona is evidence that our state’s value proposition continues to resonate with companies seeking skilled talent, affordable operating costs and an unmatched quality of life for employees,” said Sandra Watson, president and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority. “Arizona is a leader in the aerospace and defense industry, thanks to investments from companies like H.E.R.O.S. Inc. We thank them for their commitment and look forward to welcoming them into our community.”

Chad Neppl of Cresa represented H.E.R.O.S. Inc. in the lease term negotiations with the 10 Chandler team, represented by Jackie Orcutt and Evan Koplan with CBRE.

H.E.R.O.S. Inc. plans to hire employees in roles ranging from A&P technicians, engineering to management. Learn more about the company’s current openings at http://herosinc.com/.

    Good for them. Bad for the great city of Santa Clarita.

  2. Dan Norris says:

    Another established business leaves California due to high taxes and it’s anti-business mentality, relentless regulations and contempt for small business.
