Timco Aviation Services plans to begin widebody operations at its Macon, Ga., facility early next year, according to CEO Kevin Carter. “We’ve had requests from customers to expand our widebody capacity, which has been offered only at our Greensboro, N.C. facility,” Carter told AIN. “While we’ve done work on both widebodies and [single-aisle aircraft] in Greensboro, our Macon, Georgia, and Lake City, Florida, facilities have been dedicated to [single-aisle aircraft].” Timco provides light and heavy scheduled maintenance checks, exterior and interior modifications installations, upgrades and conversions for commercial, government and private aircraft. “We have recently received a [launch] contract for a fleet of Boeing 767s [that justifies] adding widebody capacity to our Macon facility. The state of Georgia will generously provide a small incentive package to get tooling and training for the 130 new people we’ll need to expand our capability.” Carter said that Timco will supplement the state grant by investing approximately $1.49 million in new tooling, facility upgrades and renovations, recruiting and training.
