Business aviation parts supplier CRS Jet Spares (Booth No. 470) has increased its European parts distribution capabilities through the creation of its first international logistics center. The London facility, located at Heathrow International Airport, was established to serve the rising demand from the European corporate aviation community, and will stock inventory from Gulfstream, Bombardier, Dassault Falcon and Hawker Beechcraft. “The decision to place inventory in Europe to support our international operators seemed a natural progression due to the growth of the global aviation market and subsequently our company,” said the company’s CEO, Armando Leighton Jr. “Our plans will be directed at providing the highest level of service to the region and developing a reputation as the source for parts.”
The new facility will allow Florida-based CRS to offer its 24/7 AOG support to its international customers. The company is also in negotiations with manufacturers to expand its product offerings and plans to open additional international inventory centers.
