Radiant Power Corporation, a designer and manufacturer of backup power and cabin power management products for commercial aviation, is expanding and hiring in Manatee County. The company, which relocated to Florida from California in 1999, will expand its 20,000-square-foot facility by more than 6,000 square feet. According to the president of the company, the growth is attributed to strong sales and strategic planning.
“We have experienced organic business growth as the aerospace market continues to recover,” says Anish Patel, president of Radiant Power Corporation
. “Also, we completed an acquisition in mid-April of Moritz Aerospace, and the strategic decision making, along with the funding we received from the county, we were able to make the decision to bring that business to Manatee.”
Patel says that he plans to hire additional employees over the next four years. According to the Manatee County Economic Development Council, the added jobs will pay 15 percent more on average than the county average wage.
“We estimate we will add seven to 10 jobs within the next year, three of which will be engineering in production and production support,” Patel says. “As the business continues to grow based on the forecast, we anticipate the balance of the remaining 26 positions will be filled over the next four years, and those positions will be in product and product assembly as well.”
Radiant Power designs and manufactures custom power supplies, inverters and lighting controls for all production models of Boeing aircraft, as well as numerous regional jets and business jets. Job candidates may send their resumes or inquiries to human resources by clicking here
