Gore Design Picks Up Big Contracts

 - October 2, 2009, 11:47 AM

Gore Design Completions in San Antonio has secured major contracts for the completion of two Airbus A340-500s. The contracts were signed in late August and work has already begun on engineering and design. The first airplane is scheduled for delivery to Gore Design toward the end of summer next year and the second will arrive in early 2011. They will be the fourth and fifth A340s finished
by the company since 2008.

A 44,000-sq-ft extension of Gore Design’s 120,000-sq-ft hangar will be completed before the first A340 arrives, allowing the simultaneous accommodation of both airplanes, along with other small aircraft projects.
