Goodrich breaks ground on a new purpose-built facility in Rzeszow, Poland

  • 18-Nov-2010 04:54 EST

Goodrich Corp. has commenced site preparation activities at a new 13-acre site in Rzeszow, Poland. The site was acquired in 2008 and is located adjacent to Rzeszow's international airport in the heart of Poland's Aviation Valley. The new manufacturing facility initially will support its landing gear business and potentially other businesses in the future. The $50 million facility will employ about 250 people. Production is expected to start in the second quarter of 2012. Goodrich's other facility in Poland, in Krosno, manufactures and assembles landing gear parts for many commercial and military customers including Airbus, Boeing, Gulfstream, and Lockheed Martin. Established as a joint venture nearly 15 years ago, the Krosno facility became wholly owned by Goodrich in 2001 and now employs more than 400 people.
