Aerospace Composites manufacturing job growth in Atmore

It’s an exciting time to be involved with the Poarch Band of Creek Indians especially if you work for Muskogee Technology (MT), an entity of Creek Indian Enterprises Development Authority (CIEDA). MT will be expanding their workforce, and will be hosting an onsite job fair April 12 at 4:30 p.m.

MT’s continued success in working in the composite fiber market has resulted in expanded services in direct relation to aerospace industry growth. These opportunities translate into a significant increase in job opportunities offered at Muskogee Technology. Approximately 20 new job positions are anticipated to be added to MT’s Composites Operations Department between April and June 2018. Additional job positions within MT’s Machining and Fabrication Departments are also being filled.

MT has been working with GKN Aerospace as a strategic partner for the last 3 to 4 years by providing custom cut composite materials to GKN Tallassee for their production of the Honda Jet’s fuselage. To initiate this operation, Muskogee Technology heavily invested capital in construction and equipment to perform Pre-preg services, commonly referred to as “pre-impregnated composite fiber,” manufacturing processes. Composite materials have unique properties that when used in aerospace manufacturing make the aircraft stronger, more durable and lightweight.

To perform these services for the aerospace industry, a Clean Room is necessary. The Clean Room is a controlled space kept free from dust and FOD (foreign objects and disposal) such as hair. These precise compliance measures are critically important to ensure the manufacturing process remains pristine. Composites Department Team Members understand they are processing composite fiber materials that will be utilized to transport commercial and private jet passengers.

Additionally, they know that the quality of products they deliver directly correlates to the safety of those passengers and the general public.
