BE&K Building Group Completes Expansion at Honda Aero, Inc.’s Jet Engine Manufacturing Plant
March 28, 2017

BE&K Building Group has completed construction on a 50,000-square-foot expansion to Honda Aero, Inc.’s jet engine manufacturing plant in Burlington, North Carolina. The expansion includes 39,335 square feet of manufacturing space and 10,665 square feet of office space.

Located adjacent to the Burlington-Alamance Regional Airport, Honda Aero uses the facility to manufacture engines for the HondaJet, a lightweight business jet produced by Honda Aircraft Company in nearby Greensboro. Honda Aero also performs overhaul and maintenance services at its Burlington campus. With the expansion, Honda Aero can now manufacture and assemble components that assist with air flow in its jet engines. The expansion is expected to create 20-30 additional jobs over the next few years.

BE&K Building Group and Honda — This marks BE&K Building Group’s fifth major project with the Honda organization over the past eight years. In Fall 2015, our firm completed two concurrent projects at Honda Aircraft Company’s world headquarters in Greensboro, North Carolina — a 49,968-square-foot expansion of their main headquarters building and the addition of a 24,405-square-foot hangar to support HondaJet production and delivery. In 2013, BE&K Building Group delivered an award-winning, 90,000-square-foot Customer Service Facility at the same site; and in 2011, we completed construction of the original 260,000-square-foot HondaJet production facility, also an award-winner.
