JANESVILLE — SC Aviation will break ground on an expansion to its Janesville hangar facility that will cost about $22.5 million. The company will receive about $500,000 in performance-based tax credits from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation.

SC Aviation provides corporate charter and aircraft management services. Its plans include adding 36,000 square feet to its existing 12,000-square-foot facility, according to Monday’s announcement.

The tax credits the company is receiving from WEDC are contingent upon the retention of SC Aviation’s existing staff of 46, as well as hiring 31 new full-time employees. The expansion project also received $100,000 in tax incremental financing from the city of Janesville.

“By expanding its facilities and adding to its workforce in Janesville, SC Aviation is building on Wisconsin’s historic and growing strength in aerospace and aviation,” said Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, who chairs the Manufacturing Committee for the Aerospace States Association, in a statement. “We’re proud that SC Aviation is one of about 200 companies in our state leading the way in precision manufacturing, engineering and innovation for the avionics industry.”
