Royal Engineered Composites is announcing the addition of 65 positions to their manufacturing facility in Minden, NE by the end of 2018. The new positions are being created due to a 300% increase in production of parts for a commercial single aisle aircraft manufactured in France.
“This is a great new opportunity for us,” said Dave Arnold, president of Royal Engineered Composites. “This increase in orders shows the faith that our customer has in our staff, our proven track record and our commitment to the highest quality standards.”
The rate of single aisle commercial aircraft being produced is predicted to have a dramatic increase over the next several years and is the reason for this increase of jobs. At any point in time, there are over 5,000 jets in the air over the United States. Royal is very pleased to serve the need of millions of travelers by helping them to reach their destinations safely.
A large portion of the 65 additions to Royal’s team will be production positions on second and third shifts. Having a full staff on all three shifts will allow Royal to continually produce parts 24-hours a day. With 180 employees currently on staff, Royal will grow to nearly 250 employees with this addition.
“The parts that we make for airplanes are very unique, so we will train the right candidate for job,” said Arnold. “We have a clean facility and are not an assembly line, so we encourage everyone to take a look at the possibilities that a career in manufacturing can provide.”
