Leading Edge Aerospace
In the Air Capital of the World, Wichita, KS.
WICHITA, Kan., July 18, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Located in the Air Capital of the World, this 15,000± square foot tooling and composite company caters to clients nationwide: from Elon Musk's SpaceX to Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic and Joby Aviation's first Electric Aerial Rideshare - with minimal staffing required. McCurdy Real Estate & Auction is inviting you to bid on Leading Edge Aerospace's facility, equipment, business operations, and resin infusion process, located in Wichita, KS, via online-only auction.
Because Leading Edge Aerospace's resin infusion process is so specialized, they are able to offer their clients a cost-efficient and time-effective option, leading to their participation in projects like the SpaceX landing leg, Cessna Scorpion, the canopy for the new F-35 fighter jet, Bell Helicopter's V-280, and more. Their unique and very specialized resin infusion process maintains the highest quality of precision while potentially saving hundreds of thousands of dollars on prototyping and production costs.
"We made the infusion process a more quality process that was dependable and could do the work while keeping the customer happy. We reduced our cost by roughly 30% compared to others for the prototype toolset we had to make. These prototype tools could be made faster, cheaper, delivered quicker, and less expensive," remarked Stan Unruh, founder and president.
The turnkey business includes the facility, equipment, machinery, and intangible assets. The real estate is made up of two commercial buildings totaling 15,000± square feet with three office spaces, a conference room, and staging & production areas.
