BATTLE CREEK, Mich., March 31, 2022 — The Michigan Economic Development Corp. announced a business expansion today with Duncan Aviation, the world’s largest family-owned aircraft maintenance and repair company.

“It’s great to see that Duncan Aviation chose to expand in Battle Creek,” said state Rep. Jim Haadsma (D-Battle Creek). “This new facility will provide more high-wage jobs to the hard-working people in our community and give opportunities for the more than 600 employees at Duncan Aviation to grow their careers.”

The company will add one hangar, three support buildings and a new vehicle maintenance building to its Battle Creek facility. The project is expected to generate an investment of more than $30 million and create at least 61 high-wage jobs, supported by a $488,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant.

Michigan was chosen for the project over competing sites in Nebraska and Utah.
