StandardAero’s Springfield, Ill. facility will be getting $500,000 worth of sprucing up, according to a spokesman for the company. “We have an on-going, company-wide process in which our facility managers maintain a dialog with our leaseholders. Our Springfield facility is fairly old and not the image we’d like to portray. So the Springfield Airport Authority has agreed to make the investment in the infrastructure,” he told AIN. In addition to repainting both the floor and walls, the project includes the installation of large-facility ventilation fans and new energy-efficient lighting. “The project will provide both our employees and customers with a more comfortable environment,” he said. “We definitely need to update the air circulation system where our employees spend their entire work day. The improvements will not only make them more comfortable and productive but it will also contribute to a significant reduction in utility costs throughout the facility.” According to the company, the work is slated to “begin soon” and take about six months to complete.
