New Capability for Honeycomb Repairs

TC MRO recently put into service our new Makino CNC EDM machine for honeycomb repairs. With the assistance of the State of Connecticut Department of Economic & Community Development Small Business Express Program, we were able to purchase this new addition in return for creating jobs that will result from future growth focused on adding this new capability.

Senator Richard Blumenthal stopped by our Bloomfield facility last week, Thursday October 12th for a shop tour and to see the improvements from his last visit a few years ago.

We're looking ahead to continued growth, expanding our business and giving back to our community.

Turbine Controls Adding Capabilities, Customers

TC MRO's president says the MRO has expanded repairs, including those for vanes.

Turbine Controls Inc.

After nearly four decades of supporting OEMs, airlines and asset managers, Turbine Controls Inc. is adding new capabilities and is growing, according to TC MRO President Glen Greenberg. The company is now certified by FAA and EASA, as well as regulators in China, Japan and Indonesia.

TC MRO has two divisions. Engine components and gearboxes are repaired by 115 employees in Bloomfield, Connecticut, while accessories are repaired by 60 staff in Miramar, Florida. Both have been expanding capabilities in recent years.

In Bloomfield, TC MRO recently added vacuum heat treating, brazing, electrical discharge machining (EDM) for honeycombs, high-pressure nozzles repairs, vane sector repairs and outlet guide vanes. It has expanded its equipment with a Kuraki six-axis milling center, a Campbell computer numerical control (CNC) grinder and vacuum furnace.

TC MRO's accessory MRO in Miramar has experienced significant growth in the past two years, according to Greenberg. A new air management testing facility can test components with flows up to 300 pounds per minute at temperatures up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. TC MRO supports engine fuel pumps, controls, actuators and nozzles, as well as hydraulic, oil and pneumatic accessories.

Greenberg is proud of TC MRO's strong relationships with OEMs-- such as Pratt & Whitney, GE and United Technologies Aerospace Systems—as well as airlines and asset managers. He says TC MRO can serve both large and small customers globally. "Over the next five years, we see a continuation of growth and expansion into new product offerings."
