Grant Money Helps Fuel C&L's Bangor Expansion


C&L Aerospace is expanding its Bangor, Maine regional aircraft MRO operations, thanks in part to a grant awarded to the city by the  U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA).

EDA is providing a $579,000 grant that will help the MRO provider refurbish a 17,000-sq-ft. hangar, upgrade an aircraft painting facility, and make other needed improvements. The effort is part of a $3 million expansion that will bolster the company's heavy airframe and parts businesses.

Under its C&L Aviation Services moniker, the company provides a variety of MRO services, specializing in Saab 340 work but also handling Dash 7s, Dash 8s, and CRJs.
