- 100,000-square-foot expansion
- 275 jobs over the next four years
- KF’s business in Hamilton marketplace to triple
New home for Canada’s largest Aerospace Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul business.
In February, KF Aerospace, Canada’s largest maintenance, repair and overhaul aviation firm, announced a 100,000-square-foot expansion at the John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport. This investment will add wide-body aircraft capability to KF’s Hamilton operation. The $30 million expansion will bring the base from two to six lines of maintenance and is expected to triple KF’s business in the Hamilton marketplace, growing the company’s ability to support the country’s fastest growing airport.
In the months following the announcement, KF hired 30 new staff in preparation for the new facilities and is still recruiting for nearly 60 additional vacancies. It expects to add a total of 275 jobs over the next four years. Their new space will also see the amalgamation of Mohawk College’s aviation program under one roof at the new KF offices space.
This state-of-the-art investment in classroom and applied skills space will make Mohawk one of Canada’s advanced post-secondary institutions offering aviation technology.
