Monroe's Aerospace Cluster Gains Altitude


Aerospace continues to be the cornerstone of Monroe and Union County's industrial base.  Within the last 6 months, Monroe has seen an expansion by Cyril Bath Company and the location of its 18th aerospace firm, Midway Aircraft Instrument Corporation.  These companies have demonstrated by their confidence in our community that we continue to be competitive on a national and international stage for high-tech, high-precision manufacturing. 

Cyril Bath Company is a world leader in design and manufacturing of aerospace equipment and machinery, as well as manufacturing components, for aerospace giants like Bombardier and Boeing. 


Midway Aircraft Instruments Corporation is a leader in avionics production and rework for corporate aircraft.  Their acquisition of the former Eminess building on Rocky Rover Road by the Charlotte-Monroe Executive Airport is an ideal location to serve their clients either by distribution of their products, but also as a service center for corporate jets landing at this premier corporate airfield. 


These companies’ investments are not significant by their size, but the investment is heard around the world in the aviation community.  In aerospace, Monroe, North Carolina is the leader in the Charlotte Region, has the highest concentration in the Carolinas and a player on aviation’s world stage.
