Vought move may bring 500 jobs to Arlington

 

Vought Aircraft, a division of Triumph Aerostructures, is making a move to Arlington that may bring about 500 jobs to the city.


Vought Aircraft is relocating its engineering services operations, including aerospace product development, as well as its division management and shared services to a 100,000 square foot facility at 1401 Nolan Ryan Expressway. When complete, Triumph will relocate approximately 500 full time employees and related contractors to this facility, with an average salary of $100,000, according to a city of Arlington release. Most of those workers were previously at a Vought plant in Dallas that is being closed.


The Arlington City Council recently approved a 10 year performance-based grant in an amount not to exceed $120,000 annually. The grant will help offset costs related to relocation and retrofitting the facility to accommodate Triumph’s operations.
Triumph Aerostructures’ Vought Aircraft Division designs, tests and manufactures aerostructures for commercial, military and business jet aircraft. Products include fuselages, wings, empennages, nacelles and helicopter cabins. It is a subsidiary of Triumph Group Inc., which purchased Dallas-based Vought Aircraft Industries Inc. in June 2010.
