Hernando airport industrial park lands firm that will manufacture, market airport safety products

BROOKSVILLE — The Hernando County Airport Industrial Park has landed a firm that will manufacture and market airport safety products.

On Tuesday, county commissioners will consider a land lease for NAC Dynamics, which plans to construct a 10,000-square-foot facility that will house both its manufacturing and business operations.

Currently, the company employs eight full- and part-time employees and could double that number in time, said Michael McHugh, Hernando County's director of business development.

The county is expected to offer several incentives to the firm including job creation and building permit and impact fee incentives.

The company has contracted with Proud Pelican Construction to design and build the facility.

NAC Dynamics, the manufacturing arm of the business, will continue to produce equipment which allows airports to measure the friction factor on runways, an important safety product especially at airports experiencing wet, snowy or icy conditions, explained McHugh.

The firm's sales and marketing division is known by the name of Neubert Aero Corp.

The county is also expected to reach a lease agreement with the firm so that it can conduct research and development of its products at a 1,500-foot performance test track at the airport. The test track will be used to test the calibration of friction testing equipment and recording friction measurements.

McHugh said the hope is that such research and development activities at the airport might grow in the future, attracting other firms.

Neubert Aero Corp. vice president Tim Neubert is a pilot who will have a quick commute from his home in Tampa to the new facility, which backs up to a taxiway, McHugh said.

The firm will be using that airside access and hangars for its corporate aircraft.

"Uniting manufacturing, warehousing and (research and development) under one roof will give us everything we need to further the science of airport safety and testing,'' Neubert is quoted as saying in a news release.
