Project Description: 

The Boeing Company asked The Austin Company to help relocate its subsidiary, Precision Gear Inc., from its location of 50 years. Austin was also responsible for the relocation and installation of Precision Gear’s existing gear production equipment and the procurement and installation of new production equipment. The project was implemented over a 12-month period.

Precision Gear uses the renovated facility to manufacture gears and transmissions for helicopters, including Boeing’s CH-47 Chinook and McDonnell Douglas’ AH-64 Apache helicopters.

The 1970s-era building required extensive renovation of the office and manufacturing areas before The Boeing Company could occupy it. The facility had most recently been used as a distribution center for holiday products. Manufacturing operations take place in distinct areas dedicated to production, heat treating, plating and wastewater treatment.
