EirTrade Aviation, the aviation technical asset services and trading company, has opened a new facility in Dallas, Fort Worth, Texas. The 22,000 ft² facility will be headed by Bill Thompson who joined EirTrade in April 2021 and will complement EirTrade’s existing operations in Europe and Asia. Despite having opened its doors only last month, EirTrade shortly expects to receive its first CF6-80C2, RB211 and CFM56-7B engines into the facility.
“I am delighted to be leading EirTrade’s expansion into the U.S., especially at a time when the industry is looking for ways to extract maximum value from older assets and source equipment quickly and cost effectively,” said Thompson. “We will be working with EirTrade’s existing infrastructure as an extension of its global activities to support U.S. contracts where a stateside warehouse will deliver improved TATs and improved opportunities for part-outs, storage, and consignments. My intention is to maintain a small, focused team which will not only bring a wealth of experience across the CFM56 and V2500 engine types, but also augment our overall capabilities by giving us insight into other engine lines which EirTrade has not previously supported, such as the CF6, and RB211.”Email Post to a Friend
