California aerospace company relocates HQ to Fort Worth area

Posted on: 05/13/2019   |   Category: Press Releases

Fort Worth, TX – Aeromax Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer of parts and assemblies for military aircraft, is relocating its headquarters from Canoga Park, Calif. to the Fort Worth area.

With more than 30 years of technical experience in advanced manufacturing, Aeromax supports various manufacturing and spares programs for international governments, overhaul facilities, licensees, and trading companies worldwide. Areas of expertise include out-of-production aircraft like Lockheed Martin’s F-16, Northrop’s F-5 and T-38, Bell’s Sikorsky UH-60 and GE’s J-85 jet engine.

“After looking at a few other locations, Fort Worth made perfect sense for us,” said Tom Brizes, chairman and president of Aeromax. “It’s an aerospace-friendly community with many local companies that we’ve been doing business with for years. With no state income tax and reasonable fuel and property prices, we look forward to moving and growing our operation here.”

Aeromax has leased a 12,000 square foot facility in the Aledo Industrial Park in Tarrant County off I-20 and Markum Ranch Rd., and will be relocating here by September 2019. Operations will include management, shipping and receiving, engineering, marketing and administrative.

“When the Chamber received a call from Aeromax, we knew we could find a home for them that is close to their industry peers and provides a trained aerospace workforce for future growth,” said Chris Strayer, senior vice president of Business Attraction, Retention and Expansion. “ The Chamber worked with the company on real estate, workforce and market validation.

Aeromax has a library of over 100,000 blueprints, standards, loft contours and specifications for the manufacture and engineering of parts for legacy aircrafts well after they have been retired.
