Avcorp names new leader of Delta facility

23 January 2020

Canadian airframe structure maker Avcorp Industries has named aerospace industry veteran Michael Elvidge as general manager of its Delta facility in British Columbia, according to the Vancouver-based company.

Elvidge “brings over 20 years of senior leadership experience in various aerospace functions, including lean manufacturing and continuous improvement”, Avcorp said on 20 January. For the past four years, he has led Avcorp’s Engineering and Quality team.

Elvidge replaces Cedric Savineau, who was Delta’s general manager for the past 16 months. Avcorp gave no reason for Savineau’s departure from the company.

The Delta facility experienced labour disruptions and a nine-day lockout last year, which hurt the site’s financial performance.
