Rohr Aero Services, Inc.
Rohr Aero Services - USA
Written and compiled by Sue Poole
The Rohr Aero Services in Fairhope, Alabama subsidiary was an office and manufacturing facility which opened in 1984. In July of 1988 constuction on a new facility was started, and in late April of 1989 employees were occupying it. On June 2 of that same year Rohr Aero Services in Fairhope was officially dedicated at a ribbon cutting ceremony. The building was a $6 million 122,000 square foot facility that employed Rohr employees and representatives. It repaired and modified "commercial and business jet nacelles and thrust reversers for customers around the world" (Hulewicz, 1989).
Rohr was planning on selling this facility (Rohr, p. 51).
The Fairhope plant is a nonunion facility (Schena, 24 Sept 1990).
By 1990, Rohr Fairhope worked on "repair, modification and overhaul of Rohr products" and had 70 employees (Rohr, 1990).
As of August 1993 Rohr Fairhope had 75 employees (Douglass, E. (1994, Jan 21). Rohr deal to sell two divisions reported. The San Diego Union - Tribune, pp. C.1-C-1.)
The Rohr 1995 Annual Report stated "Rohr Aero Services-USA is a 123,000-square-foot, FAA-certified repair and modification center located in Fairhope, Alabama" (p. 8).
