Another aviation company plans to further expand its presence in the Fort Worth area.

Wesco Aircraft Hardware Corp., currently known as Incora, will relocate its headquarters from California to Texas, bringing with it a $6 million capital investment and up to 239 jobs, according to an announcement by Gov. Greg Abbott in September.

“It is exciting to see Wesco Aircraft, an existing Fort Worth company, expand and invest in our community," Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price said. "Wesco Aircraft’s new location not only will bring more jobs to Fort Worth, but it also positions the company for continued success and future growth.”

Wesco is one of the largest aerospace supply chain service companies in the world. It specializes in procurement, warehouse management, logistics and on-site customer services.

As a result of the relocation, Wesco will receive a $1.8 million grant from the Texas Enterprise Fund, the announcement said.


“We’re pleased to see a company with existing assets in the community expanding their footprint in Fort Worth,” said Chris Strayer, executive vice president of economic development for the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce. “The location is perfectly situated for their needs, and we are confident they will continue to be successful in Fort Worth.”

According to Incora CEO Todd Renehan ,the larger office space will allow the company to increase efficiency, encourage collaboration and support future growth. A centralized location provides more access to clients in the U.S. and Europe, he said.
