Constant Aviation Expands Footprint with Acquisition in the Southeast
CLEVELAND, OHIO — March 23, 2017 – Constant Aviation, offering full-service maintenance, repair, and overhaul with a nationwide network, announced the completion of its acquisition of StarPort, a full-service MRO and FBO based in Sanford, FL (KSFB).
Stephen Maiden, President and CEO of Constant Aviation, said, “The acquisition of StarPort provides us continued growth in the Southeast with a 75,000-square foot facility that supports maintenance, interior, paint and FBO operations. It represents an opportunity to expand our business into the exterior paint market, while significantly enhancing our presence in the southeast region of the country. Our transition plans include the immediate investment of approximately $2M into the paint facility. The upgrades to the paint facility will help increase capacity, allow for quicker turn times, and will utilize the best advancements in technology. The integration of StarPort into the Constant network will be done strategically so that our organization can continue to operate as a collective unit. Our initial focus at the Orlando-based location will be adding team members to boost capacity and increase capabilities.”
“StarPort is well known for their superior paint and interior refurbishment capabilities, specifically on the Falcon, Hawker/Beech, and Bombardier platforms. Constant will be investing in training and necessary tooling to expand the product line offerings to include our niche aircraft which will begin with the Embraer, Cessna and Gulfstream airframes,” continued Maiden.
