Duncan Aviation Adds New Enterprise Manufacturing Division

LINCOLN, NEB - Duncan Aviation announced that the company has expanded and reorganized its parts manufacturing and fabrication areas, creating a new division called Duncan Manufacturing Solutions (DMS).Although DMS is currently serving in-house needs for Duncan Aviation projects and customers as well as requests from aviation system and aircraft manufacturers, the expectation is that the area will grow in the future to provide services to companies in other industries that need reliable, high-quality parts fabricated to meet their scheduling needs.Duncan Aviation has invested more than $4 million in the DMS facility, which was built adjacent to Duncan Aviation's Turbine Engine Overhaul Shop in Lincoln, Nebraska, and has 21,000-square-feet devoted to machining, metal work, and composite capabilities."The expansion is exciting, and our ability to create complex geometries with tight tolerances is impressive," says Scott Stenka, Duncan Manufacturing Solutions Manager, "but it really is an extension of work we have performed for nearly 38 years through our FAA PMA (Parts Manufacturing Approval) authorization." Duncan Aviation has supported many OEMs by producing various interior components and bracketry. During a particularly active manufacturing period from 2009 through 2011, Duncan Aviation's fabrication shop produced more than 26,800 parts every month.The company added more sophisticated equipment to supplement its previous capabilities and machinery to allow for various CNC milling, waterjet cutting, metal press, engraving, and heat-treating capabilities.
