Celebrating 1st Anniversary, Citadel Continues to Grow

March 7, 2019

Lake Charles, LA – Earlier this week, Citadel Completions welcomed a VVIP-configured Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) into their facilities at Chennault International Airport.  Over the next few weeks, Citadel will be performing a refurbishment of the airplane’s customized, luxury interior, including replacing carpet, updating seating and upholstery, restoring wood surfaces, and other modifications.    Citadel will also perform heavy maintenance and inspections on the aircraft.  The arrival of the jet closely coincided with the anniversary of Citadel moving into their Chennault properties.  On March 1st, 2018, Managing Director Joe Bonita was the sole Citadel representative on site.  Now, just over a year later, Citadel has over 100 employees working in Lake Charles, with additional recruiting efforts on-going.  Citadel also continues to renovate some of its industrial workspaces, with more manufacturing capabilities coming to fruition over the coming months.  Within a few weeks, Citadel has another privately-owned, VVIP BBJ slated to arrive for significant interior renovation.
