Canada’s largest MRO is getting bigger and adding 75 new skilled jobs. KF Aerospace announced it is adding 21,000 square feet of hangar space at its Kelowna headquarters and the total workforce at the facility will increase 10 percent. “It will bring KF’s capacity to a total of 13 concurrent lines of narrow body and regional aircraft maintenance, grow its staffing from 725 to 800 in 2020, and expand the YLW base to a total 370,000 sq. feet,” the company said in a news release.
The announcement comes only a few months after the company announced a major expansion to its eastern hub in Hamilton, Ontario. “In tandem with the major expansion of our Hamilton base, we are excited to be making additional investments in Kelowna that will help us support our airline partners with world-class maintenance services,” said CEO Tracy Medve. The building addition in Kelowna will be finished this summer.
