Our areas of core competencies are the repair of bearing journals and seal surfaces on gears, housings, supports and seals as well as very high precision grinding of holes and bores. Our parts are found on large civil aircraft and military transport aircraft.
Our customer base includes some of the worlds largest OEMs in aerospace as well as independent engine MRO’s and international airlines.
Due to our business growth we are constantly looking for experienced machinists who are familiar with grinding and machining using manual machines. While we do have CNC machines, we find machinists with a manual background have a better skill set for our type of high variety work.
We believe that training is a key differentiator in our business and there is a strong focus on both on-the-job training as well as external training both by equipment manufacturers as well as training schools such as STCC.
As part of our company bonus structure all employees are participating in, part of the bonus pool is distributed to charities as selected by the employees.
Volo Aero currently recycles its cardboard waste and has made investments in more ecological options such as hot-air hand dryers (to reduce paper towel usage), switching from solvent based cleaning to biodegradable solutions, and installing LED shop lighting to reduce our electrical usage.
