Dallas Aeronautical Services Breaks Ground On New 50,400 Sq. Ft. Facility
Dallas Aeronautical Services (DAS) recently announced the construction of a new facility in Cedar Hill, TX. The all new 50,400 sq. ft. facility will span over three acres of land and is being constructed in Cedar Hill’s High Meadows Industrial Park. Target completion date for the project is first quarter of 2014.
DAS currently operates from five separate buildings for a total of just 21,500 sq. ft. of space. However, the all new aircraft component repair station has been custom designed to provide DAS with the ample space needed to provide all of their services under one roof. The new state-of-the-art facility will feature two autoclaves, two custom paint centers, an environmentally controlled clean room, spacious walk-in oven and transmissivity test range.
A complete machine shop with four and five axis capabilities and press forming capabilities, TIG and MIG welding, an NTD lab, and three dust collection and sanding centers will be onsite as well. The facility will also feature a structures shop, a radome shop, and an advanced composite and thrust reverser overhaul shop.
“Our new facility is a substantial investment in the future of DAS,” says Mike Manning, vice president, Dallas Aeronautical Services. “Being able to provide our entire repair and overhaul capabilities under one roof allows us to support aggressive turn times while still maintaining the highest quality standards.”
DAS partnered with The Cedar Hill Economic Development Committee for the construction of the project, choosing Cedar Hill’s High Meadows Industrial Park as the prime location for their new facility.
In addition to the new facility in Texas, DAS Brazil, a subsidiary of DAS, is expanding into a new facility in São José dos Campos, Brazil in the first half of 2014.
