Kelly Aviation Center is now Lockheed Martin Commercial Engine Solutions
Kelly Aviation Center, a leading provider of aircraft engine maintenance, repair, and overhaul for international commercial and military customers, has changed its name to Lockheed Martin Commercial Engine Solutions (LMCES). “Since 1999, we have been proud to be Lockheed Martin’s only jet engine MRO service provider,” said Amy Gowder, vice president and general manager of LMCES. “Over the past three years, our legacy of improving on-wing performance for the military has grown to include commercial customers. We believe our new name reflects that growth.” Another major reason to change the company’s name was the acquisition of a second engine MRO facility in Montreal in 2013 that expanded the company’s customer base into additional international markets.
