Textron Aviation is improving the accessibility and efficiency of its parts distribution in Alaska by moving its parts stockroom from Fairbanks to Anchorage.

Based on customer feedback, this move builds on the company’s previous investment of increased parts availability in Alaska to better support customers who fly Cessna and Beechcraft aircraft, including the new twin-engine Cessna SkyCourier turboprop aircraft.

The stockroom is located at the Northland Aviation’s Anchorage facility, a Textron Aviation Authorized Service Facility that has been supporting customers since 1986.

Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker customers receive factory-direct support, maintenance and modifications by Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, through its global network of service and parts centres, mobile service units and 24/7 1CALL AOG (aircraft-on-ground) support.

Textron Aviation global parts and distribution senior vice president Brad White said: “Aviation in Alaska is essential to the transportation infrastructure.

“Many of our Alaskan customers rely on our products to access their homes, their communities, and run their businesses.

“Logistically speaking, Anchorage is the central distribution hub for Alaska. Increasing parts availability and relocating inventory to Anchorage will enable faster delivery times of the critical parts customers need to get back in the air.”

Textron Aviation’s parts stockroom in Anchorage is part of a global network of seven parts distribution centres and 17 stockrooms.

With more than 150,000 unique part numbers and a dedicated team of more than 600 professionals, Textron Aviation is well-equipped to support its customers’ parts needs worldwide.
