BANGOR, Maine – C&L Aerospace, a C&L Aviation Group company, is heavily investing in additional inventory in order to meet customer demand with the purchase and teardown of 15 aircraft. The aircraft included are 2 E170, 9 ERJ 145, 2 Saab 340B+, 1 ATR72, and 1 Challenger 604. Recently the company also purchased a multi-million-dollar ATR spare parts purchase which consists of many consumables and expendables.
“Despite the market uncertainty over the past year we are committed to continuing investment in the regional and corporate aircraft we support,” saidChris Kilgour, CEO of C&L Aviation Group. “These inventories allow us to be preferred partners for our customers who rely on us to support their needs.”
The E170 is a new aircraft type for C&L as they continue to diversify their offerings. C&L’s strategy for the E170, like all other C&L supported airframes, is a holistic approach to supplying operators and maintenance providers with a wide variety of services including spare parts supply, power-by-the-hour, consignment, landing gear and APU exchange, and engine management programs.
As with all of C&L’s inventory, these parts will be inspected and made ready for sale, which includes photographing and barcoding each part and corresponding documentation which is sent as viewable links on all customer quotes allowing more transparency for the customer during the buying process. Parts will be stored around the world in strategically located warehouses owned and operated by C&L in the United States, UK, and Australia.
