Triumph Opens Factory in Kansas

Triumph Group Inc. held a ribbon-cutting celebration at its new 156,000 square-foot Small and Medium Parts Center of Excellence. The facility will conduct machining and assembly of aircraft components made from aluminum and various hard metal alloys. The new Edgerton, Kansas factory is located at Logistics Park Kansas City (LPKC) and is expected to be completed by June 2017. Triumph Group Inc. now has three factories located in Kansas, with approximately 500 employees.

The new manufacturing plant was built to accommodate the company’s growth and expanding technologies. Products that will be manufactured at the new facility 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.

“This is a great day for our state and the community and highlights the vibrancy of our aerospace sector,” said Governor Sam Brownback. “We thank the Triumph Group for their continued investment and long term commitment to growing their operations in Kansas. We are pleased to have such a strong partnership with the Triumph Group as evidenced by them now having three plants in our state and know this will be a successful relationship for many years to come.”

“The City of Edgerton is excited to welcome Triumph to Logistics Park Kansas City. We hope that by relocating to LPKC, the company will exceed its growth goals and have continued success,” said Edgerton Mayor Donald Roberts. “LPKC was designed for companies like Triumph, who invest in our community by bringing new jobs and other opportunities.”

“Triumph is pleased to locate an advanced manufacturing operation in Kansas,” said Executive Vice President of Triumph Precision Components Rick Rosenjack. “We selected the LPKC development due to strong support from the state of Kansas and the local community in Edgerton, close proximity to an established training facility, exceptional logistics, and readily available space for future expansion,” said Rosenjack. “The short distance from Grandview to Edgerton also allows us to retain a majority of our experienced employees, which is critical to continuity of production for our valued customers.”

Triumph Group, Inc., headquartered in Berwyn, Pa., serves a broad, worldwide spectrum of the aviation industry and designs, engineers, manufactures, repairs and overhauls a broad portfolio of aerostructures, aircraft components, accessories, subassemblies and systems.
