On the shoulders of what it describes as a healthy order book with multiple new completion contracts and signed letters of intent, AMAC Aerospace of Basel, Switzerland, has embarked on the second phase of a major expansion project.
Phase-two construction began in July on a 90,000-sq-ft widebody bizliner hangar that will include backshops and offices. The total investment for the second phase is approximately $21.6 million.

The initial phase, completed last September at Basel-Mulhouse Airport, totaled 64,000 sq ft and includes a double hangar, workshops and technical offices. Also part of the project was a 215,000-sq-ft tarmac area.

According to AMAC Aerospace CEO Heinz Köhli, the workforce is expected to expand from its current 180 workers to approximately 300 by the end of next year.
