Textron Aviation has shared that progress continues on schedule for its parts and distribution expansion in Wichita, Kansas. All flooring, exterior walls, windows and roof are in place for the company’s 180,000ft² parts warehouse expansion.
Now, the team is focused on interior finishes, including wiring, painting and preparing the space for the thousands of Cessna, Beechcraft and Hawker parts the company stocks and ships to support customers around the world.
The project, which broke ground in October 2022, is on track to be completed by the end of the year. The new footprint includes additional room for parts storage, warehouse space, offices and dedicated customer support analysts.
Textron Aviation has seven distribution centres and 17 stockrooms around the world. This Wichita location houses more than 120,000 parts and employs a team of more than 350 people to support distribution operations. This major growth in the company’s parts distribution operations will better support customers who own and operate aircraft manufactured by Textron Aviation.
