MHI RJ Aviation Group (MHIRJ), the largest regional maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) service provider in the US, announced today that it has completed Phase 1 of its expansion project at the West Virginia Service Center, located at North Central West Virginia Airport. Upon completion of the expansion project, MHIRJ will add over 100,000 sq. ft. of hangar space, adding six additional lines of heavy maintenance to its MRO infrastructure. This expansion solidifies MHIRJ’s position as the largest regional MRO in the US, offering state-of-the-art facilities to the CRJ Series customer base. In addition, this new expansion will allow MHIRJ to continue pursuing its diversification strategy, enabling MHIRJ to support MRO activities on larger aircraft up to and including narrowbody aircraft.
In commemorating this important milestone, MHIRJ hosted an unveiling ceremony of their new hangar in Bridgeport, WV. In attendance were Federal, State and Local dignitaries, current and future customers, members of the Regional Airlines Association (RAA), Mitsubishi Heavy industries, Mitsubishi Heavy industries America and MHIRJ Executives, as well as several hundred WV and international team members to celebrate this significant event.
