Chromalloy, an independent provider of repairs, services and solutions for aerospace and industrial gas turbine engines, has unveiled its newly renovated turbine engine repair center and service depot in San Diego, CA.
The expanded and remodeled engine center now provides turbine parts repairs and overhaul, leasing services, workscope management, and module refurbishment. The 110,000 square foot facility also has the only engine test cell on the U.S. West Coast providing monitoring and evaluation for JT8D engines.
The facility now houses all capabilities from the company’s El Cajon, Calif., service center into the newer San Diego facility, which is located next to the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. During the last several months Chromalloy moved work and equipment from El Cajon into the newer San Diego facility where it also operated a turbine service center.
Additional equipment was purchased and installed. The company invested approximately $1 million to renovate, equip and modernize the service center. Employees from both facilities now work at the San Diego campus.
