It’s always good news for a local economy when a respected company moves into the area. These arrivals nearly always bring new jobs and a boost to other businesses, as well.
That’s why Chandler residents are celebrating the relocation of H.E.R.O.S. Inc. headquarters from its original location in California. The opening of its new HQ at the end of 2019 is highly anticipated by everyone involved.
About H.E.R.O.S. Inc.
H.E.R.O.S. Inc. got its start in Santa Clarita, California in 1988. According to their website, the company provides:
One-on-one, customized, quality engine repair and overhaul services for the Model 250 series of engines and accessories.
The Model 250 series is a line of helicopter engines manufactured by Rolls Royce. However, H.E.R.O.S. Inc. also provides repair and overhaul services for other helicopter engines. They pride themselves on rigorous testing to “meet or exceed manufacturers’ specifications.”
The company has maintained its headquarters in Santa Clarita since its founding but rising prices in California forced the organization to reevaluate its operating expenses.
There are a lot of cities that would have been happy to welcome H.E.R.O.S. Inc. with open arms. The company had options, but they chose Chandler. Here’s what Raffi Kajberouni, the Vice President of H.E.R.O.S. Inc., had to say about their decision:
Over the past year, we’ve explored several buildings and opportunities. In the end, we found our home in Chandler. The City of Chandler provides excellent business opportunities and has a deep footprint of aviation industries.
Part of the reason that Chandler was appealing to the company was because there’s a deep pool of aviation talent here. H.E.R.O.S. Inc. is a specialty business and working there requires experience and expertise – both of which are available in the Chandler area.
Two other factors played into the decision to move the company’s headquarters to Chandler: Arizona’s favorable tax rates and reasonable living expenses. H.E.R.O.S. anticipates that the lower operational overhead that comes with the move to Chandler will help them scale and grow the company in the years to come.
