Pacific Aerospace is a company that's going places in more ways than one. With staffing numbers increasing from 106 in 2007 to 157 in 2009, we have seen growth in every facet of the business.
There are many benefits in working for Pacific Aerospace in addition to the reward of seeing an aircraft depart from the facility destined for aid work in Africa, skydiving in Europe and other roles around the world. It is doing a job that few in New Zealand get the opportunity to do: making a product that is world leading in its class.
Other benefits of working at PAL include such things as the possibility for in-house promotion, subsidised health insurance, on-site parking, a country location yet close to Hamilton City, an active Social Club, friendly and supportive staff, early finishes on Friday's for Production staff and monthly staff lunches at the on site café.
