Aerospace Dynamics International, Inc. (ADI) broke ground on a 120,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Santa Clarita Thursday to support production of parts for the Airbus A350 XWB aircraft. The new facility is scheduled to open at the end of 2013 and will bring in over 500 jobs to the SCV.
In attendance at the groundbreaking ceremony was U.S Congressman Howard “Buck” McKeon, L.A. County Board Supervisor Mike Antonovich, Santa Clarita Mayor Pro Tem Bob Kellar and College of the Canyons Chancellor Dr. Dianne Van Hook who all gave speeches at the event.
During her speech, Dr. Van Hook spoke of the relationship between College of the Canyons and ADI.
“Places become what they become because of the caliber and the character of the people that are part of them and because how they learn to work together and in 1998 ADI came to us asking for a customized software training program for their engineers,” Van Hook said. “Now we train about 5,000 workers a year in the Santa Clarita Valley in blueprint reading, machining and specialized software.”
ADI has a strong history with Airbus, the company has been manufacturing the wing ribs and spars for Airbus A330, A340 and A380 aircraft for 23 years.
“When I think about a company that’s grown to over 500 employees, and will add another building and more jobs to Santa Clarita… this company is doing something, they’re moving forward,” said Congressman McKeon. “It’s a family business, I love family business.”
ADI’s new facility will be located on Rye Canyon Rd. near Newhall Ranch Rd., the new 120,000 square foot manufacturing facility will manufacture the under wing fitting pylons and equipped gear beam assembly for the A350 XWB, which will enter service in 2014.
