ROGERS, AR — Ferra Aerospace, an advanced machining and complex assembly company, acquired a new manufacturing facility here that will add nearly 30 employees and nine high-speed machines.

The Rogers facility features a 24,000 square foot manufacturing floor and will bring more skilled jobs to the areas. Ferra currently operates a facility in nearby Grove, Oklahoma that is undergoing an expansion to double its current 50,000 square foot manufacturing floor to 100,000 square feet.

“We're very pleased to announce the opening of our new location in Rogers, Arkansas,” says Jerry Cook, President of Ferra Aerospace USA. “This new facility allows Ferra Aerospace to expand our capacity in the region and provide additional advanced machining capabilities for our aerospace customers. We have been greatly impressed by the caliber of the Arkansas advanced machining workforce and are delighted to bring them into the Ferra family.”

Ferra's Arkansas facility will provide services to many leading industry companies including Northrop Grumman, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin. Cleve Jernigan will serve as the facility's Site Director.

“I am thrilled that Ferra Aerospace is establishing a precision manufacturing facility in Northwest Arkansas. The engineering and manufacturing talent in our area is second to none, and it is notable that this global aerospace company selected Rogers for its operations,” says Arkansas Congressman Steve Womack. “I welcome Ferra and its leadership to Arkansas and look forward to working with them to create jobs, grow the local economy, and support our military and defense industry.”
