WICHITA, Kan. (Sept. 11, 2019) – Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company, today announced the company opened an aircraft parts warehouse in Australia to support its industry leading fleet of business jets, turboprops and piston aircraft. The parts warehouse will be co-located at Essendon Fields Airport with Premiair Aviation Maintenance Pty Ltd, a Textron Aviation Authorized Service Facility.
“With Premiair established as our new ASF for Australia, we are enhancing our regional parts availability. This represents another step in our ongoing commitment to Textron Aviation aircraft owners in Australia and across the Asia-Pacific region,” said Brad Thress, senior vice president of Parts and Programs at Textron Aviation.
Customers, operators, MROs and channel partners will have the option to purchase factory direct parts through Textron Aviation’s ecommerce website or local sales and support staff. Parts will be shipped locally from Essendon.
“Adding this new parts facility to Textron Aviation’s support capabilities increases its level of customer service for Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker aircraft in the region,” said Paul Montauban, managing director of Premiair Aviation. “Customer Service is why our customers come to us, so providing spare parts delivery – shipped the same day in most instances – is another way to ensure comprehensive support.”
The new Australia facility follows the recent expansion of Textron Aviation’s Singapore parts warehouse to better serve customers in the Asia-Pacific region.
