Tulsa-Based Nordam Wins First Cessna Cabinetry Contract


Davis, KirLee, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Cessna Aircraft Co. hired The Nordam Group of Tulsa to supply executive cabinetry for its Citation CJ4 aircraft.

The contract, valued at up to $100 million over the next 10-15 years, marks the first such pact Cessna has awarded to Tulsa-based Nordam. The aircraft parts manufacturer and distributor will build the units at its new 120,000-square-foot cabinetry facility in Wichita.

"This is a very significant breakthrough for us," said Tray Siegfried, Nordam's vice president of business jet sales and strategic resources. "It is exactly the kind of program we have been working for since opening our Wichita facility."

Nordam is scheduled to deliver its first set of Cessna cabinets in July. It will produce a variety of pieces at Cessna specs, from the refreshment center, tables and the lavatory to closets, aft dividers, and bulkheads. Each set will be tailored to customer veneer and cabin specifications.

Cessna, a Textron company, has more than 110 CJ4 aircraft on order.

The contract represents a step forward in expanding Nordam's cabinetry operations. Gary Ball, vice president and general manager of Nordam's interiors and structures division, said the company had expanded its Wichita business from 45,000 square feet to accommodate new business. Nordam also created a partnership with JetStar Aeronautics to open a joint-venture facility in Sao Jose dos Campos, Brazil.

Nordam (www.nordam.com) also builds cabinetry for Pilatus Aircraft's PC-12 turboprop and Embraer's Legacy 600 executive jet.

"We decided in 1998 we would become one of the premier cabinet makers in the industry, and we remain dedicated to that goal," Siegfried said.

Not only did Nordam triple its overall size, the new Wichita plant doubles the company's onsite manufacturing space. The plant also incorporates advanced dust filtration and ventilation systems, down draft paint booths, and an in-house Federal Aviation Administration-approved burn lab.

Employment has grown from 60 to 150, said Russ DeVasure, general manager of Nordam Wichita.

"These are significant and exciting milestones, achievements that will help build our cabinetry business for decades to come," he said. …
