Arcturus Aerospace has opened its new manufacturing facilities in Arkansas. The company held its grand opening and ribbon-cutting on Thursday, Aug. 13.
The company announced in mid-April that it planned to move its operations to Little Rock. According to Arcturus Aerospace owner and president Mark Greenwell, the move takes advantage of Arkansas’ growing aviation industry and workforce.
“We are thrilled to relocate to Little Rock and join the momentum of the region’s growing aviation industry. Little Rock and Arkansas provide our company a skilled workforce, logistical advantages and a competitive business climate,” Greenwell said in an April statement.
Arcturus is an AS9100D-certified manufacturer that produces quality management and control systems and provides state-of-the-art machining for aircraft parts in aluminum, stainless steel and plastics.
Before moving to Little Rock, Arcturus was based in Oxnard, Calif. Founded in 1984, it came under its present ownership in 2015.
Arcturus Aerospace’s new facilities will be located at 11225 Interstate 30 in Little Rock.
