CLIENTS WE SERVE
We serve the defense and aerospace industries by providing GSE, logistics services, specialty manufacturing
and other solutions for their most complex and challenging issues.
As of May 2017, Boneal Aerospace completed a long-planned expansion with the opening of a new facility in Huntsville, AL.
This venture was initiated with the support of BonAero Board Member, and former Alabama governor, Bob Riley, and many other influential leaders in the Huntsville/Madison County community, and officially kicked off on November 14th of last year via the Boneal Aerospace: Introduction to Huntsville event. In the works for many months, the opening of this new facility represents the penultimate stage of the long-term expansion of BonAero operations.
As a primary “hub” for the aerospace and defense industries, Huntsville is an ideal location to support BonAero’s ongoing efforts to better serve both new and existing customers. BonAero is proud to be joining the Huntsville community and contributing to the continued development of the aerospace industry.
Boneal Aerospace’s new Huntsville location is located at 1000 James Record Road, Huntsville, AL 35824.
