Business is picking up bit by bit

Like we said earlier this week, any business is good business in Mesa right now, especially if its creating jobs and generating revenue. Great news from a local Mesa start-up who won a big contract to create helicopter parts.

They are looking to add about 50 more local employees over the next year to manage the needs of this new contract. Despite all of the grumblings about NAFTA, one would have to assume that this type of organization is only around because of those changes made.

It is truly an international operation - started in Canada and on the Canadian Stock exchange, they have their offices in Mesa and their foundry Mexico. Currently, they are contracting with other businesses for the machine work, but they may start their own machine division as well. Now, if only we could get them to bring up their 25 jobs in Nogales, Mexico to add to the mix as well.
