Systems and service provider to the aerospace and defence industries Goodrich yesterday (June 25) announced plans to expand its Wolverhampton Plant.
A series of proposals are currently being prepared for the Stafford Road plant expansion and will be announced in full once finalised.
The expansion comes just weeks after Goodrich Actuation Systems, a manufacturer of landing gear, aircraft wheels and engine components, reported profits of £60m, up 12%, and sales of £496m, up 17% on the previous year.
Wolverhampton City Council said it wants to see 3,000 jobs created along Stafford Road and the Goodrich expansion will boost these expectations.
A spokesman for Goodrich said: “We are exploring multiple options to accommodate additional capacity. As plans are finalised, we will provide additional information.”
