ACT Aerospace expansion could bring 100 manufacturing jobs to Sanpete County

The owners of ACT Aerospace have made a proposal to the Gunnison City Council to buy 19 acres of city-owned property for a new production facility, which they said would create 100 jobs. The council voted unanimously to move forward with negotiating details of the land sale.

ACT has a potential partner company which has been contracting with aerospace parts producers overseas and wants to bring some of the contracts back to the United States. ACT currently manufactures parts for Bell Helicopter and Honda Aircraft. The expansion would enable the company to do the same kind of work on a larger scale. Sanpete Messenger
