Comlux USA Regroups after Hangar Fire

Comlux USA, a maintenance, overhaul, completion and refurbishment center in Indianapolis, was back at work on Monday following a fire a day earlier that damaged the roof and one corner of its maintenance hangar at Indianapolis International Airport. The extent of fire damage to the facility and to four business jets in Hangar 5 is still being assessed, Comlux Aviation Services division CEO David Edinger told AIN. Damage was limited to that particular hangar and its contents. Departments assigned there, as well as their 45 employees, have already been relocated in two other Comlux USA hangars. Departments affected included human resources, information technology, accounting and job quotes, avionics and adjunct upholstery. “Due to the prompt actions of firefighters from local fire departments,” said Edinger, “the blaze was contained in a relatively short time.” Comlux America, the division responsible for bizliner completion and refurbishment, was unaffected by the fire, and Edinger emphasized, “Future projects will not be affected. We are committed to continuing our maintenance operations in Indianapolis at other facilities on airport grounds.” Comlux USA is part of Comlux The Aviation Group, headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland.
