June 29, 2012, LINCOLN, NEB — Duncan Aviation announced plans for a new business aircraft maintenance hangar and facility to be built at its Lincoln, Neb., headquarters during an open house ceremony for a new 45,000-square-foot paint shop that the company completed this spring.
Duncan Aviation plans to begin construction this fall. However, specific details on the new facility are not currently available, as they are not yet finalized.
“We are still evaluating our current and future needs as well as the continued economic climate,” says Todd Duncan, Chairman of Duncan Aviation. “The size of aircraft our customers are flying has continued to increase and, with the new paint facility, it is obvious that we need more room for accompanying maintenance, modifications and completions work that our clients will need.”
The new facility will likely include two hangar structures and three areas for office and backshop expansion. Not all of it will be completed during the initial phase, however.
“We would like to take advantage of construction and material costs and initially build the overall structure,” Duncan says. “We can then decide, based on a variety of internal and external factors, how much of it we need to finish when we open the first hangar and how much of it can wait for future phases.”
Duncan says Duncan Aviation currently employs 2,013 team members worldwide, 1,230 of them in Lincoln. That is 74 more jobs worldwide than the company had last summer at this time. In the next five years, Duncan Aviation anticipates that its workforce could grow by 400 or more positions worldwide, with roughly 200 more anticipated in the Lincoln area.
