HM Dunn Aerosystems is moving its offices to Wichita, Kansas from Fort Worth, Texas.
The move to Kansas, according to Phil Anderson, the company’s president and chief executive officer, is driven by the state’s exalted status in the global aerospace and aviation industry. The company has already spent the past two years growing its defense and industrial segment to 65pc from 30pc, and consolidated from five sites to three.
In Wichita, Dunn has two manufacturing facilities, one of which is being expanded to include the North American Low Cost Aerospace Machining, a partnership that will open the company’s small business manufacturing network to the rest of the industry. As a result, OEMs will gain cost effective access to parts and assemblies.
Its Oklahoma-based aerospace parts processing and bonding facility will remain operational despite the headquarters of the company moving to Kansas, the company noted in a statement.
HM Dunn produces aerospace parts and assemblies for Lockheed Martin’s F-35, F-16, C-130, and P3; Boeing’s KC-46, B-52, KC-135, F-15, and F-18; Gulfsteam’s G550, G500, G600; parts and assemblies for Boeing and Aerobus; and other defense and industrial programs.
