Ribbon Cut On New VT Mae Facility

June 9, 2018

A ribbon cutting was held Friday for VT Mobile Aerospace Engineering’s new hangar at the Pensacola International Airport. The brand new maintenance and engineering facility will employ about 400.

“This project is a prime example of the great things happening in the Panhandle. Our economy is booming, our tourism industry is growing and companies keep bringing their businesses here. Congratulations to VT Mobile Aerospace Engineering on making a great choice by investing in Pensacola and our military mission,” Congressman Matt Gaetz said.

As a global organization, I know that this company had many locations to choose from for this project. I am thrilled that VT MAE chose to invest in Escambia County, and look forward to seeing the continued growth of their new facility at Pensacola International Airport,” Sen. Doug Broxson said.

Florida Representative Frank White said, “This project is a big win for Pensacola. I am excited to see VT MAE grow here and bring 400 jobs to this community.”

Mr. Lim Serh Ghee, President of ST Engineering’s Aerospace sector, said, “We are thankful for the tremendous support from the State of Florida and Pensacola City governments, which have enabled us to set up the new facility on schedule and commence operations quickly. Pensacola serves as an excellent base for us to serve the MRO needs of the North America region given its rich pool of highly trained engineering and aviation talent. We are happy to have United Parcel Service as our launch customer at the new facility, and we look forward to welcoming more customers and supporting them with the same high level of quality and on-schedule redeliveries regardless of where our hangar is located, time and again.”

    Great news for the Panhandle. High paying jobs which will bring more employers to the area as a skilled labor force develops. Good things are coming.
