Precision Aviation Group Expands and Consolidates Canadian Operations Into New Facility



    ATLANTA, Feb. 11 /CNW/ -- In a continuing effort to provide the best
products and value-added services to the worldwide aerospace and defense
industry, Precision Aviation Group (PAG) -- the exclusive provider of ISMRO(R)
(Inventory Supported Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul) -- officially opened its
new facility in Vancouver, British Columbia.
    The rapid growth of PAG's Canadian entities -- Precision Heliparts-Canada
(PHP-C) and Precision Accessories & Instruments-Canada (PAI-C) -- necessitated
the new 15,000 square-foot facility, said PAG President David Mast.
    "We are excited about the consolidation and expansion of our facilities
in Vancouver.  We had outgrown our shop at Vancouver International (YVR), and
our facility in Surrey had reached maximum capacity as our business and
employee ranks in Canada have grown over 50 percent over the last 3 years,"
Mast stated.
    "After an extensive search, we decided that a new, larger facility would
best meet our current and future requirements," Mast added.  "PHP-Canada has
outgrown its facility three times over the last six years, and we wanted a
facility that could accommodate their continuing growth and handle the
addition of PAI-Canada into the same facility.  The new facility is almost
double the size of the previous one (15,000 sq.ft vs. 8,000 sq.ft), and the
integration of our two facilities will provide better turn times for customers
utilizing our MRO services.  In addition to upgrading our facilities, we have
made substantial capital investments in tooling, equipment, and logistics to
better serve our customer base, and provide a solid foundation for continued
growth in Canada."
    In 2008 PAG processed over 30,000 accessories, avionics, instruments, and
other rotable items for repair and overhaul each year. PAG's 40 technicians
total more than 450 years experience in the general aviation field and 22
Sales team members each average over 14 years of support experience. PAG has a
long history of expertise in repairs management, its employees have extensive
knowledge of the aerospace & defense industry, and it maintains strong
relationships with OEMs and other repair stations. PAG companies have FAA,
EASA and Transport Canada certifications.
