Comlux The Aviation Group is pleased to announce that Comlux America, its completion and maintenance center based in Indianapolis USA, is expanding its work scope to include wide body VIP aircraft (Airbus ACJ330-ACJ340-ACJ380 and Boeing 767BBJ-777BBJ-747BBJ)
It has only been four years since Comlux received the approval from both manufacturers as an authorized completion facility, and to date the focus has been solely on narrow body aircraft. Comlux has already completed several aircraft completions including ACJ319, ACJ320, BBJ, BBJ3, B757 and soon an ACJ321, demonstrating an ability to deliver on time the highest quality interiors to its VIP customers.
Plans are in place to immediately launch an extension to the existing state of the art facility which was inaugurated in 2012, upon signature of a VIP wide body completion. The extension of the hangar should take six months to complete. The expansion will increase the total size from 128,000 sq ft to 157,000 sq ft. The new facility will be able to accommodate in total one wide body aircraft plus up to six narrow bodies at the same time.
“When I see the quality of the work accomplished in the past few years and the strong motivation of our teams, I have no doubt that Comlux America is ready for this move into the wide body VIP market. There is huge potential not only to catch green completions but also second hand aircraft refurbishments and maintenance.” says Richard Gaona, President of Comlux Group.
In parallel to its widebody expansion, Comlux America is pleased to announce the appointment of Boyd Hunsaker as Director of Sales. Boyd Hunsaker, 44 years old, is coming from the major refurbishments and maintenance side of business. He has worked many production management roles including 7 years as Sales Director, where he signed multiple jobs on both narrow and wide body VIP aircraft.
David Edinger, CEO Comlux America adds “With our decision to expand to the wide body market, we will grow the team to about 500 employees, starting with the reinforcement of our Sales department. With Boyd, we benefit from 20 years of experience in the field of VIP aircraft completions, refurbs and maintenance. I appreciate the great value he is bringing to our Comlux team.”
