Universal Aerospace jumps at the opportunity to support the City of Arlington and the innovative high school students from Arlington High School.

The city soon will roll out artistic metal bike racks downtown that were designed by inventive high school students and precision finished by Universal Aerospace, an Arlington aerospace manufacturer.

“The bike racks will foster a welcoming and positive atmosphere for locals, visitors downtown and riders off the Centennial Trail,” said teacher Collin Nelson, whose engineering and welding class students took on the project after a meeting with the Mayor Barb Tolbert at the start of the school year.

Universal Aerospace enjoys a robust manufacturing history in Arlington and is focused on continuing to grow and strength our ties within the local community.   “We hope students took away we’re very passionate about aerospace manufacturing,” said Jason Luckie, Vice President of Operations.  The company manufactures interiors, first class fixtures, seating, ballistic doors and other parts for Boeing and Airbus planes.

“We’re focused on the people component, the right attitude. We’ll help them develop skills to be a world-class machinist,” Luckie said. “We hope Arlington students will be our next employees.”
