GREENSBORO, NC—31 October, 2012 … TIMCO Aviation Services (“TIMCO”) announced today that it has purchased the assets that were used by PEMCO World Air Services (“PEMCO”) in its former aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) operation at Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG). The company has also signed a lease agreement for the hangar previously occupied by PEMCO and will use the facility to grow the existing base of business there serving regional aircraft operators.

Steve Beshear. “By serving regional aircraft operators, TIMCO enhances our aviation industry, which is an invaluable asset for economic development, commerce, as well as passenger travel.
