Textron Aviation expands presence in Australia to modernize facilities and increase parts in region, announces name change of Premiair Aviation Maintenance

Textron Aviation announced today the company is expanding its footprint in Australia to modernize facilities and increase Cessna, Beechcraft and Hawker parts availability in the region.

In addition, Premiair Aviation Maintenance, an Australian service centre acquired by Textron Aviation in 2020, has changed its name to Textron Aviation Australia Pty Ltd. to fully integrate the Perth, Gold Coast and Melbourne facilities into the company’s comprehensive global service network.

Textron Aviation is moving to larger and modernized facilities at both Jandakot airport in Perth and Essendon Fields airport in Melbourne to grow service capacity and support parts availability in the region.

In Perth, moving Textron Aviation’s Service Centre to a larger facility at Jandakot airport provides more space for servicing aircraft, increasing shop capacity and aiding in faster scheduling with minimal down time to keep customers flying.

The new facility will also provide more comfortable environments for customers and employees. Textron Aviation expects to be fully operational in the new facility by the end of July 2024.

Brian Rohloff, senior vice president, Customer Support said: “Investing in a larger and modern Textron Aviation Service Centre facility in Perth allows us to grow our capacity and better assist customers with scheduled maintenance, modifications and aircraft-on-ground support.

“We take pride in enhancing the customer experience at all of our service locations to keep people moving and help customers evolve their aircraft to fit their missions.”

In Melbourne, the company is adding 5,000 square feet of new parts storage to a facility near Essendon Fields airport, located within five minutes of all major carriers and the Textron Aviation Service Centre.

The expansion increases parts storage by four times the previous inventory in the region, leading to faster shipments for customers.

Textron Aviation is also adding a new in-region parts customer support and warranty team in Melbourne to support all Cessna, Beechcraft and Hawker parts needs.

Textron Aviation anticipates being fully functional in the expanded Melbourne facility by the end of June 2024.

Brad White, senior vice president, Global Parts and Distribution said: “Increasing parts inventory and team members in Australia allows us to respond even faster to customers when they need support.”

“With more than 1,400 aircraft operating in the region, we’re making this investment in direct response to customer feedback and an increasing demand for parts availability globally.”

Textron Aviation also announced all Premiair Aviation Maintenance facilities in Perth, Gold Coast and Melbourne are now operating under the Textron Aviation brand as Textron Aviation Australia.
