Rise in activity puts JSSI on Florida parts path
Responding to the significant growth of business aviation in south Florida, JSSI Parts & Leasing is launching a strategically located aircraft parts warehouse in Fort Lauderdale while adding to its sales team.

A business unit of Jet Support Services (JSSI), an independent provider of all-OEM maintenance support and financial services to the business aviation industry, JSSI Parts & Leasing's latest warehouse will deliver a more efficient, cost-effective and quicker aircraft parts procurement service to operators and maintenance facilities in the area at a time when business aviation is increasingly migrating to Florida.

The new warehouse underlines the company's offering as an all-OEM aircraft parts provider, able to support customers with strategically located parts across virtually all makes and models of business aircraft. JSSI Hourly Cost Maintenance programme clients and JSSI Parts & Leasing customers will benefit from in-region stocking.

“We are excited to open our first satellite location to support our valued customers in the rapidly expanding south Florida corridor, where we've seen increasingly strong demand for parts. As we continue to monitor growing demand in key markets, we plan to open additional warehouses to aid operators and MROs in other business aviation hubs around the world where our services are needed most,” says president Ben Hockenberg.

In addition, JSSI Parts & Leasing has brought on industry veteran Eric Callahan to focus on part sales in the US southeast, including Florida.

“We can significantly shorten turnaround times by stocking critical parts for customers exactly where they need them,” adds regional sales director Eric Callahan. “The new warehouse provides a convenient base for us to establish new partnerships with key operators in this high-growth area, and I look forward to supporting customers and industry partners throughout the region and beyond.”

JSSI currently serves around 20 per cent of the global business jet fleet. These customers not only benefit from JSSI's scale, but also from the company's industry knowledge, anticipation of market trends and enhanced MRO availability.

Across its three warehouses, JSSI Parts & Leasing maintains a strategic inventory of approximately 50,000 parts to support 80 per cent of airframes and 90 per cent of engines. The company provides customers with sophisticated supply chain support, ranging from fully outsourced procurement to on demand parts fulfilment.
