C&L Increases Regional Aircraft Support

C&L Aviation Group has confirmed it is preparing for a $2.5m expansion and doubling its workforce.

C&L Aviation Group has confirmed it is preparing for a $2.5m expansion and doubling its workforce.

The MRO side of the business plans to add a 40,000-square-foot hangar and 100 more jobs.

Meanwhile C&L Aerospace, the part-supply side of C&L, has also “been growing like crazy,” according to senior sales vice-president Martin Cooper.

The part business grew 30 percent in the past year as it added the ERJ-145 to its supported models and increased its product line.

Cooper says there are synergies between parts and MRO, as the two firms can eliminate shipping costs and delays, reducing turnaround times for heavy maintenance.

Aerospace is a nose-to-tail part firm, supplying both rotables and expendables for its largely regional aircraft portfolio, which also includes Saab 340s and some Dash-8s.   

The company is now global with offices in Europe, Australia and California and a warehouse in the UK.

It is also looking to expand into more regional aircraft, possibly older types of ATRs and Bombardier Q400s.
