November 7, 2008 – Vector Aerospace Helicopter Services (Vector), one of the largest independent providers of helicopter maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services in North America, announces it will amalgamate its Van Nuys, California Rolls-Royce model 250 engine repair facility with its Dallas, Texas facility by the end of 2008. This move will have no impact on the Rolls Royce model 250 engine repair, overhaul and test operations traditionally carried out at the Richmond-British Columbia, Canada location.
Paul Cockell, Chief Operating Officer for Vector explains that in combining the technical resources and personnel from Van Nuys with those currently in place at the larger Dallas Rolls-Royce 250 engine repair and overhaul facility, Vector will be able to enhance its levels of service to operators. Cockell further explains that, in addition to the advantages gained from consolidating industry-leading technical personnel and equipment under one roof; the physical size of the Dallas facility, coupled with its geographic location enables Vector to offer its services to an even larger base of operators; extending throughout North and South America.
Vector Aerospace Helicopter Services is internationally recognized for providing superior repair and overhaul service for the Rolls-Royce model 250 engine. Vector holds the designation of Rolls-Royce Authorized Maintenance Center (AMC), and is a member of the Full-service Integrated Rolls-Royce Support Team (FIRST) Network.
