A Wichita-based aerospace company has chosen to move north to Newton with its chemical subsidiary.
Aviation Business International will house its ABI Chemicals division in a 20,000-square-foot facility at the Newton City-County Airport.
The ABI Group of Companies supplies products to airlines worldwide, including Delta, Air France and British Airways.
The new plant will produce next-generation coatings used in aerospace manufacturing processes. The coatings are being developed in conjunction with Wichita State University’s National Institute for Aviation Research.
