APS opens new facility

Aircraft Propeller Service, LLC (APS), the commercial propeller Maintenance Repair & Overhaul shop, has opened a new facility in Atibaia, Brazil, located approximately 90 kilometers from São Paulo’s international airport and less than 60 kilometers from Viracopos, a major hub for the region’s largest ATR operator, Azul.

Serving as General Manager for the APS Brazilian facility is Fabio Nascimento, who formerly served as Operations Manager for the facility when it was owned by UTC. The new APS facility is fully-staffed with all tooling and machinery already in place. The facility’s full 568F blade repair capability is online for ANAC certification by the end of April, 2016.

According to APS Vice President of Sales and Marketing Dennis Santare, “Our goal with the Atibaia facility is to provide a convenient, cost-effective logistics point for our existing Brazilian customers. It is part of our overall business plan to build out our network of facilities in key locations worldwide.” In addition to the new Brazil shop, APS is planning to open a new facility at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia later this year.
