Marshall Aerospace and Defence has created a new aviation services division aimed at expanding its MRO capabilities at its Broughton, North Wales and Cambridge facilities. This is part of a plan to raise its civil and business aviation sales from five to 18 per cent of turnover. The company wants to take on more aircraft types such as the Bombardier Global family and expand its special mission work. MRO activity covering Europe, Middle East and Africa has so far focused on the Hawker and Beechcraft family, where Marshall enjoys authorised service centre status at Broughton. Marshall has also supported Cessna Citation aircraft at Cambridge for 40 years. In anticipation of further work it recently moved its primary maintenance facility from 22 Hangar to 2 Hangar, enabling it to double its capacity for Citation maintenance to 60,000sq-ft. Although Marshall has worked on Bombardier’s Global Express aircraft for several years, it is only now are offering full spectrum MRO support from its Cambridge facility.
