Goodrich inaugurates new facility in Brea, Calif.

Goodrich Corporation held a ribbon-cutting ceremony June 28 to mark the opening of its new facility in Brea, Calif.

The ceremony, attended by civic leaders as well as Goodrich employees, included a tour of production, design and development areas within the new 105,000 square foot site.

The facility is part of Goodrich’s Sensors and Integrated Systems business, and employs approximately 260 people in high tech disciplines including engineering, manufacturing, and administrative functions.

The Brea site will provide rescue hoists, cargo winches, digital data systems and in-flight entertainment products and related services for the aerospace and defense industry. The site will also serve as the business’ software center of excellence, providing software design and support to all Sensors and Integrated Systems sites worldwide. The new site combines two former Goodrich facilities in Diamond Bar and Monterey Park, Calif., and has additional space available for future expansion and business growth.

“This new facility represents a business commitment to continuous improvement that will benefit Goodrich customers as well as employees,” said Mark Skarohlid, vice president and general manager Goodrich Sensors and Integrated Systems. “Our business is growing, and consolidating our two nearby sites into the Brea location allows us to better leverage our talented workforce and other resources to grow our business for years to come,” he added.
