Following the bankruptcy of ExelTech Aerospace, Bombardier is purchasing the company’s Saint-Laurent facilities. The acquisition will increase Bombardier’s Global completion center capabilities for its Global 5000 and Global Express XRS. “We have had plans to expand our completions capacity in Montreal and this situation presented a good opportunity to do it. It’s located directly across the street from our Global Completions Center,” a company spokesman told AIN. Fifty-year-old ExelTech Aerospace opened the facility on Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport in the summer of 2008 for regional jet, turboprop and single-aisle heavy maintenance, modification and refurbishment, and line support services. “The acquisition of the ExelTech facility positions us to better serve our customers with the highest quality completions for our flagship Global business aircraft,” said Steve Ridolfi, president of Bombardier Business Aircraft. Bombardier forecasts that the 115,000-sq-ft facility will be operational by the fall.
