To meet the ever-growing demand for aerospace parts in the global market, the Bet Shemesh Engines Group from Israel purchased LPO in 2003, signaling LPO’s return to the aerospace market.
As of 2014, LPO operates in two plants both located in Ada – the Casting Facility and the Machining Facility, making a growing contribution to Bet Shemesh Engines’ offering of a one-stop-shop in the Engine Parts Sector.
LPO continues to expand from year to year and today employs over 200 employees, including highly- experienced management and leading experts in its different areas of activity.
LPO’s expansion and growth, its strategic location, and the constant high market demands, all lay a foundation for continued evolving and success of LPO, as part of the Bet Shemesh Engines Group.
The new manufacturing area was completed at the end of 2019 and was officially handed over to LPO for use at the beginning of 2020.
This expanded the existing 1000 m2 of the Manufacturing Division by an additional 2000 m2.
A new FPI line was housed in the new part of the building, a degreasing line was placed in a designated area and an area for the corrosion line was prepared.
New machines and devices were installed in this part of the building during 2020, such as the new modern CNC Shot Peening machine with a robot arm which is primarily intended for shot peening processes of the root part of the turbine blades as well as other parts that require this type of processing.
5 CNC ELB flat grinders were installed, which were connected to a new central cooling system with high pressure pumps.
A new CNC five-axis milling machine Okuma MU 5000 has also been installed, which will provide complex machining of workpieces.
This part of the building also hosts a calibration room and offices for engineering, as well as expanded offices for final dimensional and visual control.
