Following recent news of expansion, acquisition and development of their North American airframe heavy maintenance facilities, Premier Aviation is pleased to announce the hangars have been busy. The new hangar currently has three B737NG's in-house and has had to establish a second paint line. Soaring into its fourth quarter, the Trois-Rivieres facility has proven it's need for the recent headquarters expansion – since the expansion, the plant has sustained a fifty percent increase in activities. No longer bursting at the seams, this 150,000 sq. facility is running full speed ahead allowing for a new level flexibility; unattainable prior to construction.

Premier's U.S. facility in Rome, New York is notable, not only due to its size but also the success of its first year in operation. Having duplicated the process controls, commitment to task and focus on continuous improvement that have branded Trois-Rivieres, Rome continues to meet all targets managing fleet types such as the C5A Galaxy Military Transport, that smaller facilities cannot even consider.

In the past few months, Premier has not only seen increased interest within the North American Aviation industry, but has performed maintenance for two South American operators and is close to closing on two European-based narrow-bodies.
Progress in the last quarter confirms that Premier is set to continue its penetration of the worldwide MRO market.
