About FEC

So there’s really a company that just builds heliports? There really is… and we’re proud of our story.

The FEC Advantage

FEC Heliports is a partner of Federal Equipment Company. FEC was founded in 1982 and began as a small replacement parts supplier for material handling equipment in the US ARMY, US NAVY, US Coast Guard and shipyards throughout the world. Federal Equipment Company quickly grew into a complete engineering and manufacturing company and was recently awarded a 55 million dollar contract with Huntington Ingalls Industries, formerly Northrop Grumman, to build and install the new FEC designed weapons elevators for the next generation of US Navy aircraft carriers. It was our extensive military experience that paved the way for us to expand into the commercial market in 1996 and open the doors for FEC Heliports.

Why FEC Heliports?

Over the past 20 years, FEC Heliports has designed, manufactured and installed more rooftop and aluminum helipads than anyone else in the world. We built this company with the belief that excellent customer service would be the basis for our success and that belief continues to be our goal every day. Our consultants have created solutions for hospitals, large companies, offshore oil rigs, shipboard locations and private owners all over the world. Our engineers continue to push the limits with the latest in technology for our line of heliport equipment. Our dedication to our clients continues to build FEC Heliports into a company that you can trust to make the heliport portion of your project the easiest part.

A Better Product

FEC Heliports has spent many years perfecting our aluminum solutions. With over 400 rooftop/elevated installations in the US and abroad, FEC Heliports' HELISLAT design has been consistently proven itself in every climate and under every condition without fail. Our HELOMAT ground application can also be used to retrofit existing damaged elevated locations, also allowing for snowmelting capabilities that may not have been possible before. Our supporting equipment continues to evolve and improve to meet and exceed industry demands. In addition to excellent equipment options, FEC Heliports has its own 70,000 square foot production facility, which allows us to design, build and inspect all of our heliport equipment before it arrives at your facility. This includes not only the deck and safety netting, but also the lighting, fire suppression skids and snowmelting skids. We design and build our own structural steel for decks and walkways and our facility allows us to pre-assemble your helipad to ensure proper fitting once we get to the jobsite. These are just a few of the details that the FEC Heliports team goes through to ensure that your experience with our company is successful. Let us show you why FEC Heliports is the best choice for your project!
