C&L acquires Ontic Houston’s TKS program to expand Hawker capabilities
C&L recently acquired Ontic Houston’s TKS program, expanding its Hawker offerings for repair and support services. The acquisition includes all of Ontic’s TKS inventory and gives C&L over 200 TKS panels available on flat rate exchange. This reduction in Ontic’s capabilities places C&L as the largest Hawker structural repair and overhaul facility currently in operation. C&L’s capabilities include repair and overhaul of Hawker ailerons and tabs, flaps, elevators and elevator tabs, main gear doors and fairings, main entry doors, door stays and TKS panels. C&L’s deeper level capabilities and advanced processes on these items, such as spin dimpling, the only Hawker-approved process for replacement skin fabrication, means Hawker operators and MROs can expect OE-quality repairs from the Bangor, Maine, facility.
