Tronair, Inc., a portfolio company of Golden Gate Capital is proud to announce the successful completion of equipment supporting the big game in Minnesota. It’s estimated that over 1 million people traveled to Minneapolis for the game, which created the need to move an estimated 700-900 aircraft.
Tronair assisted its FBO partners at four locations across the Twin Cities by donating support equipment including our JP100S, eJP-10, TT-12 and two of its diesel ground power units.
With snowy weather and freezing temperatures, having proven and reliable equipment was critical to safely moving the large volume of aircraft. In addition to the equipment, Tronair also donated warm winter gear to keep those working on the ramp a little more comfortable.
Patrick Caligiuri, Tronair's Vehicle Sales Manager, was part of the team providing support in Minnesota.
“It was impressive to see first-hand everything that goes into supporting an event like this. FBOs handle aircraft every day; but a coordinated effort like this, at that large of a scale ... you have to see it to believe it. On behalf of our team, it was a privilege to help out,” he said.
The eJP-10 is one of Tronair's newest releases and it performed very well in the winter weather. The eJP-10 is assembled at the company's new facility in Swanton, Ohio, by the trusted team at Eagle Tugs. In addition to a new AC motor and regenerative braking technology, the new model will also come standard with a digital display that provides vehicle and battery performance information in addition to troubleshooting and diagnostics.
