Sikorsky is to open a third engineering design center to support its aftermarket, commercial and U.S. government business. By the end of the year the facility in Bozeman, Mont., will employ 40 engineers and have room for growth. There, engineers will perform targeted airframe and subsystem detail design activities, to support anticipated growth of the OEM’s commercial and military programs and related aftermarket services.
Proposals are being sought from engineering services providers able to set up and operate the facility. The successful bidder will be announced late this month, with an operation employing some 20 engineers scheduled to start in July.
