TPR settles in, mulls expansion

MILTON, Fla. -- TPR Systems Inc. is preparing for the future, a future it expects to soar with more aerospace business. That's why the company, begun in 2002 and formerly named Turbine Parts & Repair, recently relocated to the Santa Rosa County Industrial Park in Milton, where it has an extra 2.5 acres for expansion. The company specializes in machining and manufacturing, but can also do repairs and testing on existing equipment. TPR Systems Chief Operations Manager Chuck Pyritz expects the company to need the space in two years. Like many companies in the region, TPR foresees the aerospace sector growing in part because of the Airbus final assembly line being built in Mobile, Ala., just an hour to the west.
