Aerosync Support, Inc., a leader in helicopter repairs, modifications and upgrades, is moving to the Santa Rosa Industrial Park in Milton. Aerosync has purchased the former West Coat Metal Roofing building and is making a capital investment of more than $1.75 million to the facility. With the anticipated creation of 25 jobs at an average rate of $60,000, Aerosync qualified for a performance-based incentive program aimed at increasing high-skilled, high-wage jobs in Florida.
Aerosync provides global on-site labor support for Bell and Sikorsky helicopter products. It services both commercial and military markets, specializing in depot level upgrades/modifications with heavy or crash damage repairs. In addition Aerosync designs and builds precision tooling and aircraft support equipment specialized for the aerospace market. The new facility in the Santa Rosa Industrial Park joins the company’s locations in Wichita, Kan., and Bogotá, Colombia.
Greg Bartlett, president of Aerosync said many factors brought them to Santa Rosa County.
“There is a large aerospace market in both commercial and military sectors that are in need of the services we offer,” he said. “Milton and the Santa Rosa Industrial Park is a great location for us with room to expand as future demands increase. We are very excited about being here and look forward to employing many talented folks in this area.”
Aerosync was approved for a qualified target industry tax refund, also known as QTI, as an incentive available to companies that create high wage jobs in targeted high value-added industries. Pre-approved applicants who create jobs in Florida receive tax refunds, the amount based on the number of jobs, average annual salary and location. Santa Rosa County contributes 20 percent of the refund as part of this program. A resolution for the county’s portion, or $100,000, of the incentives was passed by the Santa Rosa Board of County Commission on Oct. 23, 2014, as “Project Airwolf.”
