Ace Aeronautics is continuing its expansion in Guntersville, opening an aircraft paint booth and media blast facility for military, commercial and general aviation customers.
“The new media blast and paint center will accommodate CH/MH-47, UH/MH-60 and AH-64 or smaller from a U.S. Army helicopter perspective,” said Darrell Kindley, Ace Aeronautics president and CEO. “Our booth is designed to accommodate two of those aircraft for paint simultaneously, while the media removal area is configured for one aircraft at a time.”
For general aviation, the facility will handle aircraft King Air BE-350 and smaller.
This new facility comes on the heels of a 58,000-square-foot campus expansion that included a new hangar and office space.
“In response to the high demand for aircraft storage and MRO space, Ace has invested a significant amount over recent years to meet this need for military and commercial customers,” said Tracy Stapleton, vice president of business development for Ace. “The opening of our state-of-the-art paint booth is just one example of our investment to bring excellent facilities and services to our customers.”
Founded in 2015, Ace Aeronautics employs more than 50 people in the Marshall County area, and recent expansion gives the company the capability to double that number.
