Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group acquired Beechcraft’s flagship European MRO business, Hawker Beechcraft Limited, on September 2. Located at Broughton in the UK’s northwest corner, the facility was also known as Hawker Beechcraft Services Chester and has provided maintenance, modification, paint and upgrade services to Hawker and Beechcraft owners for more than 50 years.

Marshall ADG CEO Steve Fitz-Gerald said the company is “committed to a strategy of building our civil aerospace business and I am delighted that Hawker Beechcraft Limited has become part of Marshall Aviation Services.”

Marshall will continue to provide a service and support role for Beechcraft throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa and has been granted authorized service center status for Hawkers and King Airs. Marshall Aviation also plans to broaden the range of aircraft types supported at Broughton and provide aircraft manufacturers, governments and specialist operators with engineering and support solutions to satisfy special-mission requirements.
