BBA Aviation ERO Changes Role for Lafayette Facility
BBA Aviation Engine Repair and Overhaul (ERO) is transforming its Lafayette, La. component repair operation into a support and logistics center. The component repair work currently being done at the facility will be moved to the company’s Dallas Airmotive Heritage Park facility. “This action is in line with our long-term strategy of building our component repair business,” stated BBA Aviation ERO president Hugh McElroy. “To maximize the efficiency of component repair and growth of the latest technology, we are going to concentrate this work at our two dedicated centers of excellence–Dallas, Texas, and Portsmouth, England. By treating this work as a stand-alone business we can streamline the operation and speed the turn times on these critical and high demand items.” The Lafayette logistics operation will now report through ERO’s parts distribution company, International Turbine Services.
