Textron increases spares support for Asia Pacific
Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker customers will have better access to Textron Aviation spare parts, since the OEM has opened a parts warehouse at Essendon Fields airport with the support of Premiair.
Parts will be shipped locally from Essendon.

Textron Aviation has opened an aircraft parts warehouse in Australia to support its customer fleet of business jets, turboprops and piston aircraft. The parts warehouse will be co-located at Essendon Fields airport with Premiair Aviation Maintenance, a Textron ASF.

“With Premiair established as our new ASF for Australia, we are enhancing our regional parts availability. This represents another step in our ongoing commitment to our aircraft owners in Australia and across the Asia-Pacific region,” says Brad Thress, senior VP of parts and programmes.

Customers, operators, MROs and channel partners will have the option to purchase factory direct parts through Textron Aviation's e-commerce website or local sales and support staff. Parts will be shipped locally from Essendon.

“Adding this new parts facility to Textron Aviation's support capabilities increases its level of customer service for Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker aircraft in the region,” adds Premiair MD Paul Montauban. “Customer Service is why our customers come to us, so providing spare parts delivery, shipped the same day in most instances, is another way to ensure comprehensive support.”

The new Australia facility follows the recent expansion of Textron Aviation's Singapore parts warehouse to better serve customers in the Asia Pacific region.
