Manchester’s Planning and Zoning Commission has greenlit plans for aerospace components maker Spartan Aerospace LLC to significantly expand its local footprint.

The zoning board on Monday unanimously approved a special exception modification and erosion and sedimentation control plan to allow Spartan’s proposed construction of a 20,000-square-foot addition to its existing 66,000-square-foot manufacturing facility at 41 Progress Dr.

It’s not yet clear when Spartan will begin construction at the 5.4-acre site, but an engineer representing the company on Monday told the zoning board the buildout would last up to a year.

Spartan uses the facility to make commercial and military aircraft engines, machined products, welded assemblies and sheet metal fabrications, among other functions.

According to plans filed with the town, Spartan will erect the new manufacturing space at the north end of the site and reconfigure its loading dock area. Parking will also be increased to 112 spaces. 

The town last year awarded Spartan a special exception to allow for additional parking exceeding 60 spaces. 

Spartan could not be reached for additional details about its plans.
