DART Aerospace celebrated the next step in support of its growing activities with the inauguration of a new center of excellence and manufacturing facility in Vista California. Located near San Diego, the new site is replacing the Oceanside facilities and is expanding local manufacturing capability by more than 30%.
The 70,000 sq. ft. facility features a 5,000 sq. ft. repair station, a float and liferaft assembly area, as well as a larger testing area for on-going research and development projects. This modern facility is now consolidating all of its operations under one roof to improve both the flows of material and information. This larger center of excellence will help DART better serve customers by providing competitive manufacturing lead-time, increased inventory levels, as well as enhanced quality and operating performances.
“Flotation equipment is an important market for us and we are seeing significant growth opportunities in industry sectors such as the offshore oil and gas” said Bill Beckett, Vice President of Operations. “We look forward to expanding our presence and continuing to build relationships with customers by providing them with high quality products and a reliable R&O service. This expansion will be paramount to our success.”
The new DART facility is at 3030 Enterprise Court, Suite A, Vista, California 92081. All sales services are located at our head office in Hawkesbury Ontario.
