C&L has announced a US$3m expansion to its facility in Bangor, Maine. The project is supported in part by a US$1.2m grant from the United States Economic Development Administration, which was recently awarded to the City of Bangor. It will involve the refurbishment of a newly leased hangar and the addition of two new buildings, leading to increased capabilities and creating 100 additional jobs over the next two years.
This next phase of growth will add to C&L’s capabilities in corporate interiors, with a newly refurbished interior hangar. C&L says environmental efficiencies will be added throughout the facility, and the increased hangar space and new storage buildings will allow it to service more aircraft at once.
“Our company is always growing,” said Chris Kilgour, CEO at C&L. “This funding and the upcoming expansion will help fuel more growth, and we are grateful to the City of Bangor and our state’s congressional leadership for their continued support.”
In 2014, C&L completed a US$5m expansion that tripled the company’s space and included a 17,000ft² paint hangar. That expansion was also partially funded by a grant from the EDA and it allowed C&L to move into new markets, including interior refurbishments for executive jets.
