Alpine Aviation Announces Ozark Location
Alpine Aviation Group, Inc., an aerospace-focused advanced manufacturing company, is expanding into Missouri with a new facility that will be used to assemble wiring harnesses for aircraft in Ozark, Missouri. The new facility is expected to create 39 new jobs in the region.
"We are honored to receive Alpine Aviation Group as the newest member of the Christian County Business community,” said Andrea Sitzes, President and CEO of Show Me Christian County. “Alpine is adding a tremendous amount of value to our area, both from an economic and workforce perspective, and we could not be more excited to see them continue to grow and flourish in Christian County."
“It is our privilege to have the opportunity to establish a company in the Ozarks,” said Terry Cedar, Director of Aviation Electrical Manufacturing. “Alpine is looking forward to bringing innovative designs throughout not only the aerospace industry but beyond.”
Show Me Christian County, the City of Ozark, Springfield Regional Economic Partnership, Missouri Partnership, and the Missouri Department of Economic Development all worked to bring Alpine Aviation Group to Missouri.
“We are excited to welcome Alpine Aviation Group to the Ozark community,” Governor Mike Parson said. “The company is bringing quality, high-paying jobs to the many hardworking individuals who call Missouri home. Alpine’s investment is a testament to Missouri’s leadership in aerospace manufacturing and innovation, and we look forward to working together as the company continues to grow and invest in our state.”
Alpine Aviation’s decision to establish operations in Southwest Missouri was largely influenced by the region’s quality workforce. The key factor in site selection proved to be the existing knowledge base in the Springfield area, which far exceeded competing locations in other states.
“The City of Ozark is excited to welcome Alpine Aviation to the growing list of companies moving to Ozark and Christian County,” said Rick Gardner, Mayor of Ozark. “We look forward to a very long and profitable partnership with them.”
