Nordam announced on January 10 that it is consolidating its Wichita business jet design and production facility into its Interiors & Structures division at Nordam headquarters in Tulsa, Okla. The move affects about 75 people who work at the Wichita branch, which opened in 2007 and covers 120,000 sq ft. Nordam is offering first opportunities for jobs in Tulsa to the Wichita employees. In Tulsa, Nordam is adding a 50,000-sq-ft expansion of the Interior & Structures division, scheduled to open later this year.
Basil Barimo has been named executive v-p for all Nordam repair divisions, including Europe and Singapore. He also holds responsibility for the repair divisions’ Europe and Americas sales regions; he was previously v-p and general manager for the firm’s Tulsa-based repair division. John Clawson has been promoted to v-p and general manager of Nordam’s thrust reverser division. His new duties also include overseeing sales, marketing, quality and business systems for the company’s manufacturing effort.
