AeroMod International LLC is moving its national headquarters from the Detroit area to Orlando Melbourne International Airport (MLB), bringing with it 100 jobs at competitively high salaries.
The company is taking advantage of the airport´s state-of-the-art 83,000 sq. ft. MRO facility, as well as Melbourne, Florida´s aviation-central location and enviable climate.
The airport approved the 10-year lease with four five-year options to begin April 1. Total space leased is 119,000 square feet, bringing an annual revenue of USD646,739 to the airport.
The company is an FAA-certified Part 145 Repair Station, capable of repairing, replacing or modifying components of narrow and wide-body aircraft with demonstrated experience including the Boeing 717, 737,747, 757,767 and 777, as well as the Airbus 319, 320, 321 A330 and 340 aircraft. It is best known for installing GoGo inflight Internet and entertainment systems for Delta, Air Canada, Virgin Atlantic and other major airlines.
AeroMod´s customer base is expected to expand at MLB due to its proximity to international airline hubs, said the company.
