To strengthen its Asia Pacific service offering, Textron Aviation acquired Premiair Aviation Maintenance, an Australian MRO service provider. Previously named an Authorized Service Facility, Premiair now joins the Textron Aviation company-owned global support network to service Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker products at service center locations strategically located throughout Australia.

“Textron Aviation has been steadily investing in service options for the Asia Pacific region to ensure customers flying all Textron Aviation aircraft receive the exceptional support they expect,” said Kriya Shortt, senior vice president of Global Customer Support at Textron Aviation. “Throughout the past year, we substantially increased our regional footprint, capabilities and parts availability. The Premiair team demonstrated their commitment to quality, relationships and customer care as an ASF, and now we are excited to welcome them to Textron Aviation.”

Premiair operates in strategic locations across Australia, including Melbourne, Gold Coast (Coolangatta), and Western Australia (Jandakot). The company’s footprint spans major markets in Australia and will allow Textron Aviation customers in the region close access to industry-leading aircraft maintenance and support, including avionics services and upgrades, scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, structural and component repair and overhaul and refurbishment.

The acquisition of Premiair follows other Textron Aviation investments in APAC, including a service and parts room expansion at the Singapore Service Center, an increase in the number of regional field service representatives, the opening of a new parts warehouse in Australia, and the establishment of a new service location in Manila. The company also continued to invest in mobile service units (MSUs) and grew the specially outfitted fleet of maintenance trucks to 75 units worldwide.
