Ship it AOG, the Addison, Texas spare parts distributor, has relocated to a site that expands the company’s storage and operating facilities nearly fivefold.
“Our new location will enable us to expand the scope and sophistication of our current services with added space and upgraded technology,” said George Miller, Ship it AOG president. The company’s addition of 7,000 sq ft of space at the Addison Airport also involved expanding its sales force and increasing on-site inventories by 150 percent, Ship it AOG said.

In addition to expanding its warehouse and office space, Ship it AOG announced the appointment of Raymond Goyco as vice president of sales and marketing. Goyco has held sales and marketing positions at Raytheon, Aviall, Corporate Service Supply & Manufacturing and served in the Air Force. His responsibilities at Ship it AOG include new business development and technology integration. It’s a job he is said he is eager to start considering the expansion activity. “Our new warehouse and management system,” he said, “saves time and allows us to access customer files within seconds.”

Ship it AOG was established in 2000 and has doubled its annual sales each year since its inception, the company reported. The firm has an inventory of ground-support equipment for Challengers, Gulfstreams and Hawkers.
