Bombardier plans to invest $80 million in a new service center in Miami, which will be one of the largest in its network.

At the same time, it is moving its heavy maintenance operations in Fort Lauderdale to the new location, which will be large enough to handle its Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft including the new Global 7500.

The 300,000-sq.-ft. facility, which will open in 2020 at Miami’s Opa Locka Executive Airport, will perform maintenance, modifications and avionics installations and will employ about 300 workers, nearly double its current headcount in Florida. Opa Locka is home to more than 60 Bombardier aircraft.

The company says it will continue to support customers in Fort Lauderdale with a line maintenance station.

According to Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez, the salaries of those employed at the new center will average $70,000, and the facility will serve to forge “workforce partnerships with our local schools for continuing career opportunities.”
