Senator Donnelly visits Dean Baldwin Painting

Peru Tribune, The (IN) - Monday, August 4, 2014
Author: Chad Abshire, cabshire@perutribune.com

One of the "instrumental" figures in having Dean Baldwin Painting in Miami County visited it for the first time Monday.

Sen. Joe Donnelly , D-Ind., visited along with a number of notable figures from the area, including Mayor Jim Walker, Commissioner Josh Francis and Miami County Economic Development Authority Executive Director Jim Tidd.

Donnelly said he had "worked together with (MCEDA) for a long time to try to be a good partner and help get Dean Baldwin here" and that it was his "first chance to be here since they opened up."

"It's a terrific business," Donnelly said. "They employ a lot of our local people. It's a great skilled trade. It's good for our families, it's good for our economy and it helps to put our area on the map."

While at the facility, Donnelly spoke with multiple employees and sanded one of the "training planes" that new hires work with.

James Spencer, a lead-in-training and painter at the facility, showed Donnelly how to work the sander and what he look for while sanding.

Spencer said Donnelly did "just fine" at sanding the plane's previous paint job.

He said it was important for elected officials to visit facilities like Dean Baldwin because "we need to get more people back into the workforce."

"We need to have more jobs coming into the area so people can actually make a living because we've lost too many jobs out of this area," Spencer said. "We need new jobs coming into the state so people can live."

Donnelly said there was "a lot more wisdom in Miami County than in Washington D.C.," and that "the more people I talk to here, the better off" he is.

"This is very, very important to me and is very close to my heart," Donnelly said of job creation. "The more families where mom and dad are working, the better off we are."

General Manager Chris Renteria said he was happy to have Donnelly visit, saying "he helped us to put this place together."

"It was nice for him to come out and see the finished product," he said. "It's always good for them to see where their money went at the end of the day. Anyone is welcome here at anytime, including our elected officials."

Renteria said the company was booked through 2015 for painting airplanes and would be "ramping up" its workforce soon, expecting to have 180 total employees by early September.

Prior to the start of his tour, Tidd told Donnelly a brief history of the facility, which is part of Grissom Aeroplex.

"This was an asset that the Air Force gave to the community back during the base realignment and closure," he said. "It sat vacant since 1994. It had been in a condition for nine years. You could imagine what the facility looked like."

He said the community "started this project with a dream," which was "how do you use some of these assets that we have to turn it back into aviation development to help diversify the regional economy."

Tidd said the facility was a $13.8 million project which was funded through five agencies: The United States Department of Agriculture, MCEDA, Office of Community and Rural Affairs, Indiana Economic Development Corporation and the local community.

Donnelly said he was "privileged" to have worked to bring it into reality.

"Together, I thought we made a really good team. No one ever worried about politics or any of that nonsense," he said. "Everyone said, 'How do we put more people to work? How do we grow our economy? How do we make our aviation history even greater?'"

Dean Baldwin Painting, LP Puts Its Money Where Its Facility Is

Summary:  Dean Baldwin Painting, LP. announced today, that the construction, signaling the beginning of a 2.2 million dollar investment  to upgrade its legacy facility in Roswell, New Mexico, has begun.   It has only been 90 days since the ribbon cutting of the newly renovated Indiana facility and now ownership attention has turned to improving its other full service location. 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Dean Baldwin Painting LP. proudly reported today that the construction to upgrade the Roswell facility is underway. Plans to improve and upgrade the facility were a year in the making and included erecting six walls of steel and girder construction to replace the curtain dividers, new air handling and heating equipment in the B767 bay and a new waste water treatment plant. Barbara Baldwin, CEO and owner of this privately held company, will be investing nearly one and a half million dollars to upgrade the Roswell operation combined with a $750,000 Community Development Block Grant Development Funding administered by the City of Roswell. "This is no small undertaking; but, it's very worthwhile to maintain the best working environment possible for our customers and employees well into the future" said, Barbara Baldwin. The steel walls and new air handling equipment will allow a more balanced air flow between the bays. The new waste water treatment plant, essential to purifying all the water used during the cleaning and painting process, will allow the company to stay ahead of the EPA's water quality requirements. Michael Vickers, Roswell City Planning and Support Director and Project Manager for this construction project has been working with Dean Baldwin Painting and the City of Roswell for nearly a year to pull this project together. Timing was critical to minimize the impact to an operation that paints 160 to 200 aircraft each year. The Roswell, New Mexico facility has 165,000 sq. ft. divided into six independent aircraft strip and paint bays with offices and employee areas. This location provides jobs to more than 160 families with plans to add more jobs in the future. "These are great improvements to an excellent facility that serves as a great economic driver to our community" said, Michael Vickers. "These upgrades are important to the continued success of Dean Baldwin." The facility is well maintained and has had its share of improvements over the years since Dean Baldwin Painting, LP took over the facility in 1999 and converted it to an aircraft painting facility. Some past upgrades included the addition of the facility foam fire suppression system and a new roof installed in 2010. This latest round of upgrades is an indication of the level of importance the company places on the success of the Roswell facility.

Dean Baldwin Painting, LP. Joins JetBlue Airways Honoring the FDNY
Foundation Paints Blue Bravest Aircraft

Dean Baldwin Painting, LP. has been painting aircraft for Jetblue Airways since 2010. So, this is not the first themed livery painted by the experts at Dean Baldwin Painting celebrating organizations for JetBlue. Dean Baldwin also painted the Boston Red Sox and New York State Tourism – "I Love New York" aircraft; but, the Blue Bravest aircraft is a special tribute. This innovative aircraft paint scheme is a vast departure from the JetBlue iconic blue and white and was painted red as a special tribute to the FDNY Foundation. "We appreciate the hard work and dedication of the firefighters and emergency medical technicians who work in NYC," said Barbara Baldwin, president and CEO of Dean Baldwin Painting, LP. "And for us, it is also a tribute to our hometown firefighters, paramedics and emergency medical technicians who work hard every day to keep us safe, sometimes to their own parcel". The aircraft was painted with a special sense of pride and it showed in the beautifully painted bright red and blue aircraft. Upon its completion the aircraft flew directly to New York from Roswell, N.M. Once in the Big Apple, the plane did a low-altitude fly-by over the Hudson River at sunrise giving New Yorker's the first glimpse of this aircraft dedicated to the FDNY Foundation. "Dean Baldwin is a valued business partner," said Dave Barger, JetBlue's president and CEO. "Their work is equal parts art and science, as clearly seen in our Blue Bravest aircraft, honoring the FDNY Foundation. We appreciate their fine craftsmanship and professionalism." Dave Barger and FDNY Commissioner Salvatore Cassano revealed this aircraft to JetBlue crewmembers, friends and family and FDNY personnel on October 23 at JetBlue's JFK Hangar. "It was truly an honor to be asked by JetBlue to paint this livery for them and I am proud to be a JetBlue business partner," Barbara continued.

Dean Baldwin Painting Has Landed:
Company Hosts Grand Opening at Grissom Air Reserve Base

From the Peru Tribune Posted Friday September 27th.
By Eric Stoff estoff@perutribune.com  

A collection of Miami County luminaries and out of town guests gathered at Dean Baldwin Painting for the company's grand opening of the new Grissom Air Reserve Base facility Thursday morning.

Before the ribbon was cut, Jim Tidd, executive director of Miami County Economic Development Authority, recognized and thanked people who were key in the development of the 155,000 square-foot facility. He also thanked the funding partners for the $14.2 million project with a sheepish laugh. "This is a great day for the community," Tidd said. "This is something we've been looking forward to for a long, long time."

Mayor Jim Walker started a speech by joking that Tidd had a full head of hair when he started the project. Walker said in 1994, the community was shocked to learn Grissom Air Force Base would be realigned, eliminating 4,500 jobs and making a $102 million economic impact, but it has taken advantage of the valuable asset.

"When you're handed a former military base, your first question is 'What are we going to do with this thing?'" Walker said. "What we (did) here in Miami County is what we do in any situation. We roll up our sleeves and we get to work." He said the community will see the fruits of its labor for "a long time coming."

"We have come from the shocking news in 1994 to a celebration in 2013. This is truly a success story for all to be proud of," Walker said. Walker welcomed Dean Baldwin Painting Chief Executive Officer Barbara Baldwin "as a friend and corporate partner," thanking her for believing in the community.

Tidd said he met Baldwin at a Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul show in Dallas, Texas in April 2009. He waited by Baldwin's tent, and, once she was free, inquired about her interest in expanding to Hangar 200 at Grissom. She said yes. "I was fumbling for my business cards. Out of a thousand times you hear no, you hear one yes," Tidd said.

Baldwin spoke about the importance of family. The company was started by her father-in-law as a side business for their family. "This company is not me," she said. "It's all of us."

Vice President of Business Development Rick Smith spoke of the importance of treating business like a family. "The decisions we make in everything we do are, much like the decisions you may make in your own family… long-term, for the good of everyone," he said, adding the company will celebrate 50 years of business in 2015.

Dean Baldwin Painting opened a facility in Roswell, N.M. in 1999; San Antonio in 2003; Phoenix, Ariz. in 2012; and now Peru in 2013. The hangar in Peru is the only one the company owns that can take in a wide-body 747 commercial airline.

Baldwin was impressed with the appearance of the facility from the outside, especially since it was built in the late 1950s, Tidd said.

"I said at (the) groundbreaking, 'That's an ugly duckling, but it will be a beautiful swan someday,'" she said. "I get chills."

There are now 150 full-time employees at the facility, and about $1.8 million has been paid in payroll since painting started in March. Baldwin said she wants to hire 30 more employees immediately and have 200 employees for the beginning of 2014.

She said the Hangar 200 facility at Grissom is "the best state-of-the-art aircraft painting facility owned by an independent (company) in the United States."

Baldwin signed a 30-year lease to operate the four-bay hangar, and during a tour of the facility, she mentioned the possibility of staying 60 years.

Local officials spent $14.2 million over two years to make Hangar 200 suitable.

The hangar was funded by five sources: a $7.1 million loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to Miami County Economic Development Authority (MCEDA), a $3.1 million Economic Development Administration (EDA) grant, a $2 million Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) grant, $1.5 million in Miami County Economic Development Income Tax (CEDIT) and a $234,000 Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) grant. MCEDA Executive Director Jim Tidd said last month the loan is backed by Miami County CEDIT money.

Tidd said MCEDA views Baldwin as the potential beginning of a suite of aircraft service businesses at Grissom. He anticipates businesses will take advantage of the downtime afforded by painting a plane to perform other service from cleaning to engine maintenance.

"Since the realignment of Grissom, the community has had a vision for revitalization with the aviation tools left behind," he said. "We have a variety of opportunities for new businesses."

Baldwin said last month being closer to the coast was a major factor in a Peru location for the company. "Airlines factor in how far they have to take the airplane… into the cost," she said. "Being close to central markets really helps us."

Bringing Airline Industry to Miami County, Indiana

Following nearly ten months of construction to renovate and expand the aircraft painting facility in Peru, Indiana, Dean Baldwin Painting officially opened its hangar doors for business this past weekend. Ground breaking first took place in May, 2012 to convert Hangar200 at the Grissom Aeroplex into a world class aircraft painting facility. An existing 98,000 square feet facility was modernized, expanded to 155,000 sf. and converted to a strip and paint hangar that will now allow the induction of much larger aircraft like the B777 and B747-8 aircraft.

Barbara Baldwin, President and CEO of Dean Baldwin Painting, LP was personally on hand to greet the first aircraft to enter the facility this weekend. The arrival marked a significant milestone for the Peru, Indiana community in its efforts to redevelop the former Grissom Air Force Base. Since the realignment of Grissom, the community's vision has been for a mixed use development of the former base to include aviation. Dean Baldwin Painting's presence in the new facility here at Grissom is the first true reuse of some of Grissom's aviation assets.

"Our company is extremely thrilled this day has finally arrived," said Barbara. "And, I dare say that the aviation industry is thrilled as well."

Dean Baldwin Painting, LP. Hangar Expansion Begins

Pharos-Tribune
Hangar project to add 200 jobs
By Carson Gerber
Posted:  05/17/2012 5:58 AM
  
Work on expanding and renovating an airplane hangar at Grissom Aeroplex is set to begin later this month, paving the way for a business that officials say will generate 200 jobs.
The $13.8 million project will accommodate Texas-based Dean Baldwin Painting LP. The hangar will be expanded by 50,000 square feet so it can house massive airplanes like the Boeing 747, which Dean Baldwin paints and services.
Company CEO Barbara Baldwin said she anticipates the facility will create about 200 jobs with a $6 million payroll in 2013.
The expansion project will be funded by a $7.2 million loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, state loans totaling $5.1 million and more than $1 million in funding from Miami County.  
The Miami County Economic Development Authority accepted bids for all five construction packages earlier this month. The packages cover work like steel erection, fire suppression, wastewater and plumbing.
Huston Electric in Kokomo was awarded the bid for electrical work at $1.3 million.
Jim Tidd, executive director of MCEDA, said the agency has issued notices of awards for all the bids, but contractors will not be issued notices to proceed with the work until Tuesday, after they return required paperwork.
“A project like this doesn’t just develop overnight,” Tidd said Wednesday at a celebratory groundbreaking outside the hangar. “Economic development is very competitive and takes time. And this project is no stranger to time.”
The project has been in the works since 2009. Since that time, its budget increased from $10.3 million to $13.8 million after upgrades were required to meet building codes.
The project was postponed last year after MCEDA rejected bids on the five construction packages when they came back significantly higher than expected.

   


At the groundbreaking ceremony, a group of local and state officials, including Indiana Secretary of Commerce Dan Hasler, praised Dean Baldwin for staying with the hangar after three years of waiting.
“This state does not take ‘no’ for an answer,” Barbara Baldwin said. “When a door closes, they look for another door. There’s a resiliency here. It’s been three hard years, but you’ve made it happen.”
She said major airlines are waiting for Dean Baldwin to open, and she projected the facility would be operating at maximum capacity within the first year.
The company plans to paint and service more than 200 airplanes a year, which could attract other aviation businesses to the area, Barbara Baldwin said.
“Mark my words — You will be amazed what you see going on here,” she said.
Dean Baldwin, a 46-year-old company with facilities in New Mexico and Texas, has signed a 30-year lease agreement with Miami County to use the hangar. Tidd said the yearly lease payments will go towards paying off the federal and state loans to expand the hangar.
Barbara Baldwin said the company should be operating out of the facility by December. Once a final completion date is set, she said, the company will begin hiring employees and setting up contracts with airline companies.
“That hangar is an ugly duckling right now, but it will be a beautiful swan very soon,” Baldwin said.

Dean Baldwin Painting Reaches Critical Milestone in Hangar Expansion
Project that will Bring Hundreds of New Jobs to Miami County

Dean Baldwin Painting met a critical milestone as; the community begins evaluations of construction bids for the company’s newest aircraft painting facility in Peru, Indiana. The state-of-the-art facility represents the first aviation expansion for the region in years bringing hundreds of jobs to the area.

ricks@deanbaldwinpainting.com

                Construction bids for Dean Baldwin Painting’s newest expansion in Peru, Indiana are moving forward as the aircraft painting company gears up for the ground breaking.   The last date to receive bid responses from the prospective construction companies was March 14th.  The bids were evaluated for correctness and thoroughness and all indications are that the bids received are within budget requirements. The remodeling will expand upon an already existing hangar at the Grissom Aeroplex in Miami County near Peru, Indiana, home of Grissom Air Reserve Base.  Once construction is complete, the Hangar will be on lease to Dean Baldwin Painting by the community.  This landmark expansion is the first in years since the 1993 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) decision, a board which shut down and relocated airfields across the United States.

"This is a very positive next step," said Jim Tidd, Executive Director of Miami County Economic Development Authority, adding that “this is the beginning of a tremendous opportunity for the community.” Dean Baldwin Painting’s newest facility will bring over 200 new jobs to Miami County and will help strengthen the region’s workforce where the 10.2% unemployment rate is already above the national average.

The newest Dean Baldwin Painting expansion will increase the size of the existing facilities from 98,000 sq ft to 155,000 sq ft adding the capability to house very large B747-8 aircraft.  The expansion will also include the addition of state-of the- art equipment transforming the facility into a modern aircraft strip and painting facility.  When completed it will feature four full service bays, expandable to six bays, equipped to strip and paint aircraft.  The bays will have independently functioning air control and heating units, and will be large enough to accommodate two wide body aircraft and two narrow body aircraft simultaneously, expandable to six narrow body aircraft when the wide body bays are not in use.   

Following formal engineering review and approval by the EDA (Economic Development Administration), and the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) the construction will begin at a rapid pace.

 Dean Baldwin Painting saw their latest successful project hit the skies this past week with the ceremonial unveiling of JetBlue’s Red Sox-themed Airbus A320 aircraft. The aircraft painting company completed the project to stellar praise from employees, JetBlue representatives, and Red Sox Business partners. The quality of the aircraft painter’s work has led to a huge amount of media and internet buzz surrounding the custom plane, and an increase in aircraft painting contracts for the privately owned company.

The paint design, heavily influenced by the Red Sox’s classic away uniforms, includes a grey body with the iconic Red Sox logo on the tail end of the aircraft. Blue wing tips complement the style and another logo and banner indicating Fenway Park’s 100th anniversary resides closer to the plane’s nose. Dean Baldwin Painting’s craftsmanship was admired during a ceremony at Boston’s Logan International Airport and followed by an inaugural flight to Fort Myers, FL.

"Dean Baldwin is a true master of their craft and we cannot thank them enough for their support," said National Sponsorships Coordinator Rick Pineda. Customers, JetBlue, and the Boston Red Sox are all delighted with the aircraft painter’s work. "

This is not Dean Baldwin Painting’s first dealing with JetBlue. The aviation painter was first approached by JetBlue for work in 2010, and their continued quality work has led to plans to paint 20 more A320 aircraft for JetBlue this year.

Dean Baldwin Painting LP. Donates to the Local University

Unlike the hundreds of other aircraft that Dean Baldwin Painting LP will paint this year for the major airlines, this recently painted aircraft will never fly again. Yet this B727 is every bit as important as any of the aircraft painted for the major airlines.

The B727 aircraft was painted for the Eastern New Mexico University- Roswell at no cost to the University and will become an important tool for training future aircraft mechanics. The aircraft was donated to the school some 6 years ago to be used as a training aide; but, had not been used by the school in part because the Fed Ex logo had not been painted away which was a condition of the donation.

When Jim Burress, General Manager of Dean Baldwin Painting's Roswell facility learned of the schools dilemma, he discussed the situation with Barbara Baldwin, CEO of Dean Baldwin Painting LP. "When Jim brought the University's need to my attention I agreed without hesitation. The students working on that plane could very well be employees at our company some day" said, Barbara Baldwin. "I am glad to help the school and I was glad to help some of our employees as well. About twenty employees needed more 'on the job training' in their records to advance to a higher job level, which awards them with a higher pay grade. So, by doing the work and recording it in their employee records they meet the criteria to advance to the next pay grade. I thought immediately, this would help both our causes."

Training is an important part of the company culture at Dean Baldwin Painting. That is why supporting ENMU-R was an easy decision. Baldwin has an extensive in-house training program designed to maximize employee potential and career growth. All Dean Baldwin Painting employees who are classified as preppers and painters are placed by job levels, according to a program written and initiated by Dean Baldwin Painting. The program clearly outlines the job level requirements with goals and experience one must attain through OJT (on the job training) to advance.

The ENMU-R officials recently unveiled the freshly painted B727 aircraft courtesy of the paint service specialists at Dean Baldwin Painting LP. who completed the $80,000 paint job at no cost to the school. The paint products were donated by PPG Aerospace, a global aviation paint supplier.

Jim Burress was on hand to greet the students. "We're anxious for you to graduate," He told the 20 aviation students who were checking out their new plane. "We're very proud of you. Stay with it. You'll have a long future."

The ENMU-R AMT school is a 14 1/2 month long program that is the only FAA Part 147 A&P school in the southeast part of the state. Students will no longer use the Boeing B727 as a display model, but as a trainer for larger aircraft systems, fuel systems, rigging, hydraulics, brakes, tires, air-conditioning, auxiliary power unit, electrical systems and inspections. The Boeing B727 is the only large aircraft the program owns, though there are multiple smaller aircraft to practice on, including a Cessna, two Bell 47 helicopters, an Acroduster Too, a Beechcraft Model 50 and a Huey Model UH1 Helicopter.

Dean Baldwin Painting, LP.  Donated B727 Painting
for the Eastern New Mexico University Roswell

Record Staff Writer

Painting a 727 airplane typically costs about $80,000, but Dean Baldwin Painting Inc. is painting one free to benefit the Aviation Maintenance Technology program at Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell.

Dean Baldwin Painting General Manager Jim Burress said that painting the Boeing 727-100, which Fed Ex donated to the school several years ago, will help ENMU-R students working toward their Federal Aviation Administration license receive hands-on training in their classes, while also helping Burress train his employees how to prime and paint aircraft.

“It’s a win-win,” Burress said. “It helps the college, and it helps our employees move up (in their careers).”
PPG  Industries, a global paint supplier company, will donate the paint, while aircraft paint service specialists Dean Baldwin, located in a hangar at the Roswell International Air Center, will donate the time and labor. Burress estimates that the job will cost his company about $40,000 to $50,000 for the cost of labor and materials.

“We’re very grateful that they’re able to do this for us,” ENMU-R College Development Director Donna Oracion said. “We’re very pleased to have a partner like them close by, and we’re very appreciative.”
Oracion added that when Fed Ex donated the aircraft to the school, it was written into the contract that the Fed Ex logo should be extracted from the plane, since it no longer belonged to the company. The effort was delayed due to the steep cost of the project.
The ENMU-R AMT program uses the 727 as a trainer for larger aircraft systems, fuel systems, rigging, hydraulics, brakes, tires, air-conditioning, auxiliary power unit, electrical systems and inspections, according to the school’s website. It is the only large aircraft the program owns, though there are multiple smaller aircraft to practice on, including a Cessna, two Bell 47 helicopters, an Acroduster Too, a Beechcraft Model 50 and a Huey Model UH1 Helicopter.

The ENMU-R AMT 14½ long program is the only FAA Part 147/A&P school in the southeast part of the state.

MRO 2011 - Thank You for another Successful Conference

Another Aviation Week MRO Conference has come to an end.  It was very exciting for us this year as we were introducing the addition of our new facility planned to open in Indiana in 2012. 

The MRO Conference always proves to be a great occasion to meet up with old friends and make new ones.  All of us at Dean Baldwin Painting LP would like to thank all of our friends who stopped by our booth in Miami to show interest and support of Dean Baldwin Painting and our new business expansion into Indiana.

Dean Baldwin Painting LP Expanding its Operation to the Midwest

Bulverde, Texas – Dean Baldwin Painting, LP is moving ahead with plans that will nearly double the size of the company and increase its accessibility to the East Coast.  The company signed a 20 year lease with the Miami County Economic Development Authority on January 18th of this year to acquire Hangar 200 at the Grissom Aeroplex in Peru, Indiana located 65 miles north of Indianapolis.   The facility will be modernized and expanded prior to its opening, planned for December of this year. 

The selection of the Indiana location was a long and deliberate process that included the review of strengths and weaknesses of over 20 different locations. “Our expansion plans developed over a span of 5 years.” said CEO Barbara Baldwin, “Together with my team we considered a number of great locations; but, in October of 2009 we decided the Grissom Aeroplex best suited the needs of our company and our customers.”  

The present hangar complex will be undergoing an estimated $10.5 million expansion and conversion to a state of the art strip and paint facility.  When the expansion is complete, the facility will have two wide body and two narrow body bays and will easily accommodate aircraft as large as a B747 or A330.  Grissom Aeroplex is an active Air Reserve Base with a 12,500 foot runway enabling it to land aircraft as large as a B747.  

The facility will run two shifts providing 24/7 coverage and plans to hire over 200 employees. “We’ve invested a great deal in our training programs over the years and we take great pride in our ability to cross train from other skills and have them move up the ladder earning $15 to $25 an hour,” explains Barbara Baldwin. 

The work force will be recruited primarily from the six county region of north central Indiana.  “The region, with a ready work force in excess of 250,000, has a rich history of manufacturing and producing quality products,” adds Jim Tidd, Executive Director of the Miami County Economic Development Authority.  The community is also home to many Community Colleges, post secondary school and vocational training institutions capable of providing training support to Dean Baldwin Painting.  

The local community fully supports the addition of an aerospace company to their community. “This is what we wanted,” said Rachel M. Daily, director of marketing and business attraction for the Miami County Economic Development Authority.” We are very excited about the diversification this project will bring to our region and the job opportunities that will be made available within our local economy. “The estimated economic impact of the project could be $161 million for the region within the first five years.”

The Indiana location is a short hop from many of the nation’s major cities in the Eastern U.S. and Midwest such as Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Louisville, Memphis, New York, St. Louis and many more making this site ideal to support a wide array of air carriers.   

Dean Baldwin Painting, LP, has corporate offices located in Bulverde, Texas.  Its Roswell operation is an ISO 9001:2008 compliant, certified minority-woman owned, small, privately held business specializing in aircraft refinishing services.
