Avmats Engine Support has acquired the assets of Gulfstream Aerospace’s auxiliary powerplant unit (APU) facility in Appleton, Wisconsin, bolstering the Missouri company’s business in the APU market, specifically those under the Sundstrand brand. “This acquisition adds capacity and capability to the already robust support that Avmats offers to our customers,” said Avmats president Justin Giessman.
With the acquisition, Avmats has added 10,000 sq ft and an additional test cell at its engine support facility in O’Fallon, Missouri. Avmats also now supports Sundstrand T-20G series APUs and line replaceable units, in addition to support of Sundstrand T-62T-40 series APUs. What’s more, the company has added capabilities to service electronic sequence units, for which it will provide repair and exchange options.
With operations in four locations totaling more than 250,000 sq ft, the Avmats family of companies provides maintenance, parts, and component support for Beechjet, Citation, Challenger, Falcon, Gulfstream, Hawker, Learjet, and Sabreliner jets.
