Air Capital of the World
The greater Wichita region has pioneered aviation and manufacturing since 1916. The name “Air Capital of the World” was first used in the late 1920’s and since then, it quickly became a nickname to refer to Wichita. Flight is in the heritage of the region. Some of the world’s largest aviation companies are in located in this area designing and building parts, sections, and entire aircraft. They work with more than 450 world-class suppliers to accomplish this. Over 35% of all General Aviation Planes built in the United States, come from Kansas (reference www.aircapitaloftheworld.com). Modig Machine Tool has delivered numerous machines to the aviation suppliers since the 1990’s, including some located in Wichita, and is the preferred Machine supplier for several of them.
