Cedar Hill, TX, October 21, 2014 - Dallas Aeronautical Services (DAS) Brazil recently announced they are expanding into a new facility in São José dos Campos, Brazil. DAS Brazil will begin operating in the new facility starting in the first half of 2015.

A subsidiary of Dallas Aeronautical Services, DAS Brazil specializes in the production, repair and overhaul of composites, structures and assemblies. DAS previously opened an office facility in the Technical Park at São José dos Campos, Universidade Vale do Paraíba (UniVap), which is used as an R&D office and for new project and contract development. The new facility, which is located outside of UniVap Technical Park, will be the actual repair station and will operate under the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) of Brazil. Both projects are being supported by Invest San Paulo and UniVap

The new facility will be utilized to better serve the business aircraft market in South America and will feature two 11’x9’ paint booths, one to be utilized for sanding, the other for painting, one 9’x13’ curing oven and a 16.5’x16.5’ climate controlled modular clean room. Operating in 16,200 square feet of space, the new facility will be located in the Eldorado Centro Commercial e Industrial Business Park.

Once the new facility is up and running, DAS will be hiring additional workforce locally, and then training the new employees in both Brazil and in the US.

“Our goal is to mimic our US facility in Brazil, have it operating at the same level and delivering the same high quality work,” said Mike Manning, Vice President, DAS. “We will bring new employees to the US, as well as sending management and training personnel to Brazil to give onsite training to our new teams there.”

DAS is an FAA Part 145 Repair Station that provides support for corporate aircraft operators through the overhaul and repair of composites, structures and assemblies. In addition to their operation in the United States, DAS also operates in South America under the name DAS Brazil. Specializing in thrust reversers, control surfaces, engine cowls, pylon and floor panels, as well as radome repair and testing, DAS provides support for Bombardier Learjet and Challenger, Gulfstream, Piaggio, Embraer, Boeing, and Hawker Beechcraft and Beechjet components. In addition, DAS has cultivated a diverse list of active partnerships within the aviation industry, including leading OEMs. Conveniently located just south of Dallas Love Field airport, DAS can support aggressive turn times while maintaining the highest quality and providing competitive prices.
