1/7/2014
Investment Highlights APRO’s Commitment to Deerfield Beach and the Aviation Community
 
(Deerfield Beach, Florida, January 7, 2014)A-PRO (Aero Precision Repair and Overhaul) recently unveiled a $1,000,000 renovation and streamlining operation that will enhance the business’s capabilities and improve both the quality and timeliness of service for its global customer base.
 
A joint venture of Dassault Falcon Jet Corp, Dassault Aviation’s subsidiary, and Safran’s Messier-Bugatti-Dowty unit,
A-PRO overhauls landing gear and components for general aviation, commercial aviation and military customers around the world.
 
“A-PRO has been a part of the Deerfield Beach community for nearly a quarter of a century. To underscore our commitment to both the local community and our many customers across the globe, we’ve made significant capital investments to our facility and processes that will not only improve our ability to serve our customers, but will help us to remain competitive, profitable and successful in the years to come,” said Darren Burge, A-PRO President.
 
Among the many improvements is a complete reorganization of the facility’s production flow to improve turnaround time. Modern vertical storage systems free up existing space and make access to supplies more convenient. Upgraded, expanded paint systems are more efficient and safer for employees, while new air handling equipment improves air quality in the facility. Reorganization of work flow in the machine shop allows multiple machines to be used by a single operator while simultaneously increasing job efficiency.
 
A-PRO employs 84 people in numerous capacities, including customer support and marketing experts and highly specialized machine operators and repair and overhaul specialists.
