A government services business is coming to Jack Edwards National Airport in Gulf Shores, and it plans a new hangar to open next summer. 

Resicum International LLC today announced plans to relocate its headquarters and begin construction on a new hangar facility at the airport.

The company plans a 21,000-square-foot hangar which will bring 18 new aerospace jobs and more than $1.1 million in annual payroll in its first two years, according to an announcement.  

Resicum International will start up operations this August in an existing hangar facility at the airport, with construction beginning on the new hangar later this year.  

Resicum International is a certified aviation training and maintenance provider, approved by the U.S. Department of Defense to maintain their aircraft and provide training with DOD assets at the hangar. Resicum has operations on three continents.

The company also provides commercial, state and local government with maintenance, repair and overhaul, as well as flight school services through AeroPro, the company’s civil aviation unit. Resicum has applied for a Part 141 certification which is pending with the FAA.

By the end of this year, it expects to offer nonscheduled charter and unmanned aerial vehicle support for both government and commercial customers. Resicum projects sales of more than $8 million this year, with steady growth beyond.

The company’s managing director, Robert Baird, said Resicum intends a long-term investment to grow the business in Gulf Shores.

“Resicum International is committed to bringing excellent aerospace services and well-paying technical jobs to Baldwin County and the Gulf Coast, for both our commercial and government services clients,” Baird said.

Gulf Shores Mayor Robert Craft said the project helps meet goals to expand and diversify the local economy.

“(Resicum’s) investment in our community and Jack Edwards National Airport will benefit the entire region by bringing new, high paying jobs to our area,” Craft said.

Airport Director Scott Fuller said the project is what the Airport Authority sought with the $5 million Horak Complex investment, completed last year.

“Resicum International’s operation will have a significant positive impact in growing non-tourism, specialized jobs for Baldwin County, and all parties involved in this acquisition need to be commended,” Fuller said.
