Vector Aerospace Consolidates Texas-based Rolls-Royce and Pratt & Whitney Canada Engine Operations

September 1, 2009 – Vector Aerospace Corporation announces its Helicopter Services Rolls-Royce 250 model engine repair facility located in Lewisville, Texas is consolidating with the Vector Engine Services-Atlantic Pratt & Whitney Canada engine repair station in Southlake, Texas to create a combined engine repair operation. From Southlake, Vector Aerospace will offer repair station support for the Rolls-Royce Model 250 and the Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A, JT15D and PW100 engines.

John MacDougall, Senior Vice President of Sales for Vector, is pleased with the consolidation strategy. “By combining the expertise and technical resources of these two operations, Vector is well-positioned to develop process efficiencies that offer operators enhanced benefits including decreased turn-times and improved accessibility to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport; which will aid in expediting the shipping and receiving process. Of course, offering the industry’s best customer service is a Vector hallmark, and this plan provides yet another opportunity to improve upon our exceptional standards of personal attention and customer satisfaction.”

MacDougall emphasizes Vector anticipates a smooth transition for the Southlake repair station and assures customers that the company does not anticipate interruption to the either the Rolls-Royce or Pratt & Whitney engine lines during the September 1st- October 1st, 2009 transition period.
