Colleges Help Fill Aerospace Gear Maker’s Openings

A Windsor company that builds precision aerospace gears has expanded its manufacturing space by 24,000 square feet and hired two dozen machinists to keep pace with the industry’s upswing.

Aero Gear, founded in 1982, plans to hire another 15 to 20 people over the next year to work in the new space, which brings its Day Hill Road shop to a total of 93,000 square feet. The company’s current workforce of 175 people began filling the addition, outfitted with $3 million in new technology, this week, founder and president Doug Rose said.
