Over the last month, lease discusses were under way to relocate Eber Road-based Tronair to the former BAX Global sorting building. Previously disclosed to FlyTOL is that this will allow Tronair to expand its operations and add an additional 100 jobs, doubling the current workforce. The move to Air Cargo Parkway will bring more than just 200 new jobs to the airport, it will fill up the largest building on the airport grounds. The building is currently owned by the Port Authority and the relief that this will bring to the Port for additional capital expenses is not to be underdone.
Tronair is a ground service equipment manufacturer that originated from Dana Corporation and was spun off in the 1970s. The company has offices and customers worldwide.
