Constant Aviation has entered an exclusive agreement to acquire StarPort, which offers MRO and FBO services in Sanford, near Orlando, Florida. The acquisition is projected to close during the first quarter of 2017. StarPort’s portfolio includes FBO, aircraft maintenance, avionics installation, and interior and custom paint capabilities.
“The decision provides Constant its first paint operation, an organizational focal area in 2017,” said Stephen Maiden, president and CEO of Constant Aviation. “With proposed plans to add a paint facility at the company’s headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio, the acquisition of StarPort offers our customers an immediate solution. We have always had the desire to expand into Florida, a state that houses more than 500 of our niche aircraft.
“As we have experienced growth over the past decade, we waited for the right opportunity to move into the Florida region. The StarPort acquisition provides us the opportunity to strengthen and expand our capabilities while we will remain focused on providing an exceptional service experience.”
