BBA Aviation Engine Repair and Overhaul Group (ERO) is creating centers of excellence (COE) at each of its major repair and overhaul facilities in the U.S. “Combining a given product family at one central location will enable us to maximize the efficiency of our labor force and our supply chain,” said group president Hugh McElroy. “Our COEs will benefit customers in a number of ways by clearly establishing brand identification for the various product lines, optimizing the speed and efficiency of our work, enhancing our product and market focus, and ultimately delivering the greatest customer satisfaction.” The company has three major repair and overhaul centers in the U.S. The Dallas Airmotive Forest Park (Dallas, Texas) facility will have COEs for Pratt & Whitney Canada products and Rolls-Royce Spey and Tay engines. The Premier Turbines facility (Neosho, Mo.) has COEs for Rolls-Royce 250 and General Electric engines, and the Dallas Airmotive Heritage Park facility (Grapevine, Texas) will have a COE for Honeywell products.
