Textron invests in Stuttgart service expansion
Textron Aviation's Stuttgart airport facilities will be expanded to a satellite service centre, and as such it will be able to provide a similar scope of work as factory direct but in a smaller capacity.
The increased footprint at Stuttgart will add service capabilities for the Beechcraft King Air series this autumn.

Textron Aviation has made additional investments in its European service network, with an expansion of its Stuttgart line station facility becoming a satellite service centre. It is expanding its factory direct service options at Stuttgart airport and the added footprint will add service capabilities for the Beechcraft King Air series this autumn.

“We have strategically enhanced our footprint and capabilities in Europe due to the growing demand for services to ensure access to factory direct service and support to customers,” says Phil Jones, vice president, European service centres. “This new service centre model allows us to provide additional factory direct support and deliver expert care to our aircraft owners and operators, regardless of where they are in the world.”

As a satellite service centre, Stuttgart can provide the same scope of work as Textron's factory direct service centres but in a smaller capacity. It continues to operate two additional line stations in Cannes and Geneva and five company owned service centres located in Düsseldorf, Paris Le Bourget, Prague, Valencia and Zürich.

Textron has a team of more than 450 employees in Europe providing customers local access to factory direct expertise, as well as a parts distribution centre located in Düsseldorf with more than 40,000 parts available in the region to serve the European Cessna, Beechcraft and Hawker fleet.
