Hawker Beechcraft Opens International Sales HQ

 - July 30, 2007, 10:32 AM

Hawker Beechcraft late last month opened its new international sales headquarters at the Hawarden Airport, Broughton, UK. In an unusually poignant example of globalization, the opening means that Hawkers sold in the UK will have come full circle–from wings and fuselage by Airbus UK to final assembly and testing at the company’s Wichita headquarters and finally back to the UK to be sold. Included in the facility is a design center where buyers can customize their aircraft with visualization tools, such as those found in Wichita. The company has been aggressively pursuing international sales opportunities this year. At the Paris Air Show in June, it announced new sales partners in India and the Middle East.
