Securaplane Technologies, a leading supplier of avionics products for business, commercial and military aircraft, has made the move from its former location at Foothills Business Park into a newly-constructed 55,000 square foot facility that will house 180 employees in Oro Valley’s Innovation Park. Securaplane’s strong market growth has made it necessary to increase the size of its operations to support production programs for business jet, air transport, rotorcraft and military customers.

“We are pleased to see Securaplane join word-class leaders Sanofi and the Roche Group’s Ventana Medical Systems along our bioscience and high-tech corridor in Innovation Park,” said Oro Mayor Satish I. Hiremath. “We’re also proud that Securaplane was the first business to benefit from the Economic Expansion Zone.”

The Economic Expansion Zone, which Oro Valley Town Council approved on October 3, 2012, is an overlay district that streamlines the process and reduces the time required to establish or expand a business in that area.

“Nearly nine months ago, we broke ground at the site in Innovation Park, and now the dream is real. The Securaplane team and the construction team, along with the Town of Oro Valley, accomplished a remarkable feat of completing the construction and transitioning our operations flawlessly–on time, at cost and with impeccable quality. I would also like to express my sincere gratitude for the special care we received from the FAA office in Phoenix, our AS9100 certification agency, and, most of all, our customers, all of whom helped us succeed in this endeavor. I am sure this new facility will be key for Securaplane to continue its growth trajectory through innovation, customer satisfaction and top-talent recruitment and retention.”

A grand opening celebration will be held March 20, 2014 with federal, state, and local officials along with key Securaplane stakeholders.

Securaplane is an operating subsidiary of Meggitt PLC. Headquartered in the United Kingdom, Meggitt PLC is an international group operating in North America, Europe, and Asia. Known for its specialized extreme environment engineering, Meggitt is a world leader in aerospace, defense and energy markets.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
