C&L Aviation Group has completed the construction of a state-of-the-art 12,000-ft² aircraft refurbishment facility at its Bangor, ME campus, next to the company’s aircraft paint hangar. The facility will be utilised to address the increased volume in both regional and corporate aircraft interior refurbishment projects the company has been receiving for the past several years.
“We’ve made substantial investments in space, equipment and manpower for the aircraft operators we serve,” said Chris Kilgour, CEO of C&L Aviation Group. “The new facility, along with increased in-house capabilities, provide us with robust options for customers looking for anything from a basic replacement of soft goods to complete interior upgrades and modifications.”
The new facility is equipped with a Gerber leather cutting machine, laser engraving machine, paint booth, seatbelt manufacturing centre, separate assembly and disassembly areas and more.
The new facility is one of five building projects C&L has completed since the start of the pandemic. In 2020 the company purchased a local events centre near the Bangor airport and converted it into a component shop, where they work on smaller aircraft components. The company also constructed a new 27,000-ft² aircraft parts warehouse, a 5,000-ft² add-on to one of their hangars for storage, and a complete renovation of its corporate aircraft maintenance hangar which includes new floors, walls, customer offices and a state-of-the-art interior showcase and design centre.
