Barnes Aerospace, a business unit of Bristol-based Barnes Group Inc., said Monday it is investing more than $20 million to expand manufacturing operations in Singapore.

The move is expected to increase its capabilities in the Asia market. The investment will provide an additional 40,000 square feet of manufacturing space as well as equipment and machinery.

Barnes Aerospace has a long-established presence in Singapore where its operations support the global aerospace industry with the production of engine component parts and repair services.

The company said it will add 5-axis milling and grinding, electron beam and laser welding and 3-D printing in the expanded space. These processes will support increased production of engine components for "ramping" engine platforms – those that power the world's newest single and twin-aisle commercial aircraft, said Michael Beck, senior vice president, Barnes Group Inc., and president of Barnes Aerospace.
