The aerospace economy in Colorado has been growing for years, but the rate at which it’s boomed lately leaves it second only to California. We have over 180 aerospace companies and more than 500 businesses that sell products related to space and aerospace needs. From legacy aerospace firms that have been in the state for decades to newer businesses, there’s no denying that Colorado has developed an impressive niche within the industry. But what you might not know is the important role CNC machining plays in that industry – so let’s look a little closer.
Booming Colorado Industry
Colorado has the highest concentration of aerospace employment in the country and brings in an estimated $15.4 billion into the economy each year, according to the Denver Post. It’s an industry with more and more upside, and we’re excited to see where it continues to grow in the future.
As for where CNC machining plays a role, consider this. CNC machining is the most viable and reliable manufacturing process for metal components, which are in high demand in the aerospace industry for many projects. It also allows for high-precision creation of parts in a variety of mediums including metals, plastics, and composites. Essentially, CNC machining has the ability to reliably, and to the highest standards, create components that are crucial in helping aerospace projects and machinery work seamlessly.
