KLX Aerospace Solutions Global Aviation Distributor Expands Adding up to 400 Jobs in Miami-Dade
KLX Aerospace Solutions, a global distributor of aerospace fasteners and consumables, expanded its Miami-Dade operations and building new global headquarters with a state of the art distribution center. The expansion added new aviation sector jobs and substantial capital investments to the Miami-Dade County. The decision to stay in Miami-Dade and not move to Memphis or Phoenix retained almost 600 existing jobs and will create more than 100 jobs in the first year of growth and up to 400 new jobs in the future.
“The relocation and expansion of KLX Inc.’s Aerospace Solutions Group (“ASG”) facilities highlights South Florida as one of the world’s fastest-growing logistics, trade and air transport hubs. Our new Miami headquarters will enhance our existing operations and assist with our ongoing recruiting efforts,” said John Cuomo, Vice President and General Manager of KLX’s Aerospace Solutions Group.
KLX Aerospace Solutions has a global presence consisting of more than 1.5 million square feet in more than 60 locations with 2,000+ employees worldwide.
“We are pleased to have an aviation industry leader like KLX Aerospace Solutions growing and investing in Miami-Dade County,” Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez said. “KLX Aerospace Solutions’ decision to expand in Miami-Dade speaks to our talent, our global business attributes and the strength of our aviation industry.”
