An aerospace group is relocating 85 employees from its airport venue to the historic Philcade Building downtown, company representatives said.
A division of Pennsylvania-based Triumph Group Inc., Triumph Aerospace Structures will move to Philcade’s 10th floor. Employees moving to the new offices represent engineering, product support, supply chain, quality and contracts. Most of the employees are expected to move from its location at 3330 N. Mingo Road by this week, though others are scheduled to move downtown through the beginning of 2020, the company said.
Triumph recently announced that its aerospace structures business will provide engineering services for Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp. in support of the design and development of the Mitsubishi SpaceJet M100. The contract leverages Triumph’s core structural engineering resources to provide airframe design and analysis support for the aircraft’s development as it relates to wing optimization and access to advanced material technology.
Headquartered in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, Triumph Group, Inc., designs, engineers, manufactures, repairs and overhauls a broad portfolio of aerospace and defense systems, components and structures. The company serves the global aviation industry, including original equipment manufacturers and the full spectrum of military and commercial aircraft operators.
Lackey and Clay Pearce, senior engineering manager, said having a location in the central business district will be good for company recruiting and retention.
“Downtown is a great environment for employees working in our engineering and supply chain groups,” Pearce said. “The building space has lots of windows providing natural lighting. The location is in an historic and vibrant area with lots of restaurants other and amenities nearby that provide lots of opportunities to interact with similar professionals from other companies.”
Known for its interior artwork, architectural design and role in the city’s oil history, the Philcade was completed in 1931 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Triumph will occupy 16,240 square feet in the building, company officials said.
