Hawker Beechcraft Corporation today expanded its global customer service and support capability with the opening of a new Hawker Beechcraft Services paint facility in Chester, U.K. In conjunction with the new paint facility, Hawker Beechcraft is aligning its aircraft maintenance, interiors modification and refurbishment services at the existing Chester facility to provide a multifunctional service location for customers.
“This new facility allows us to effectively respond to the growing demands of our customers, and enhances our commitment to meet and exceed their expectations,” said Bruce Watson, General Manager of Hawker Beechcraft’s Chester facility.
Completed in November, the stand- alone facility has one paint bay and one preparation area to accommodate the Hawker 4000 and similar sized aircraft and, depending on the mix, is capable of housing four aircraft at any one time.
“This one-stop shop maintenance and paint facility will be a unique selling point for Hawker Beechcraft in helping them to expand their offering and accelerate the company’s growth,” said First Minister for Wales Rhodri Morgan.
