FL: Delta-Engineering to Locate, Add Jobs at Flagler County Executive Airport
17 Dec, 2014
Flagler County Commissioners unanimously approved the proposed airport lease with Delta-Engineering last night. “This is another wonderful opportunity for our residents and an indicator that the investment in the airport is generating a return,” said Commissioner Revels.
The international company, headquartered in New Castle, Delaware, is expanding its operation to Flagler County Florida. They have leased the airport’s 14,000 square-foot corporate office and hangar. The facility will initially house a handful of approximately 10 key engineering research and design positions and later expand to include manufacturing and installation services. Average salaries will be in the $90K-$110K range.
Delta-Engineering has provided the aviation industry with certification, engineering and manufacturing services for nearly 15 years. Their projects range from small single engine aircraft to Boeing 747-400 and 777. The company provides FAA certification for aircraft modification and parts manufacturing, designs and manufactures the kits and parts for the aircraft modifications, engineers the avionics for specialized data acquisition system requirements and builds testing equipment load simulators.
“We are excited to be part of the Flagler County airport,” said John Moritz, President, “the facilities are ideal for our operation and the County team has been extremely helpful and responsive to our needs. We’re looking forward to growing our operation in Florida.”
“The company is a perfect match for the airport’s tenant roster,” Director of Flagler County’s airport, Roy Sieger said.
“It has been a pleasure working with John and Jonathon Moritz. Delta-Engineering is a solid, reputable company that will be a great addition to our family.”
The announcement is eighth in Flagler County’s string of economic success stories.
“We’re proud of the progress we’ve made in creating a business-friendly and business-ready environment,” County Administrator Craig Coffey said.
Executive Director of Economic Development Helga Van Eckert said Flagler County is being recognized as open for business and that will benefit the residents directly with new employment opportunities and stabile tax rates.
