Robinson Helicopter

Founded in 1973 by Frank Robinson, Robinson Helicopter employs approximately 1000 employees and is currently the world's leading manufacturer of civil helicopters. In addition, Robinson has a factory overhaul program for older aircraft and conducts monthly safety courses for helicopter flight instructors and maintenance technicians. A network of more than 400 service centers of which 126 are authorized dealers provide world-wide service and support.

Located in Southern California, Robinson's factory was designed and built for helicopter manufacturing. The facility is equipped with the latest state-of-the-art machinery, including CNC (computer numerically controlled) machining centers and CMM (coordinate measuring machines). To maintain the highest quality, most operations including welding, machining, assembly, painting and flight testing are performed at the Torrance facility. In 2010 Robinson added 133,000 sq feet of manufacturing space bringing the company's total manufacturing space to 617,000 sq feet.
