It started out as a small, Griffin, Ga.-based repair station specializing in fiberglass aircraft such as the Cirrus but quickly expanded into carbon fiber and Kevlar. Atlanta Aerospace Composites continues to expand rapidly, adding comprehensive sheet metal repairs to its list of services.

Success led to the company’s moving into a new facility that includes a pressurized climate-controlled “clean room,” a separate grinding room that ensures containment of contaminants, a 10,000-sq-ft hangar and a paint booth, all of which led to greater success and the need for additional expansion. According to company president Ron Alexander, Atlanta Aerospace is now offering radome repair, including transmissivity testing, and is yet again expanding its workforce and planning additions to the existing space.
