Evergreen International Aviation, Inc. a portfolio of five diverse aviation companies headquartered in McMinnville, Oregon announces that the Evergreen Air Center has a new name and will be conducting business as: Evergreen Maintenance Center.
The new Evergreen Maintenance Center Inc. continues to be the largest commercial aircraft maintenance, paint and storage facility in the world. "Over the last three years our Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facilities in Arizona have significantly expanded their aircraft maintenance capabilities and customers," states Jim Toomey, President of EMC. "When you consider our growth spotlights today's newest equipment including: Boeing 757, 767, 777 aircraft and growing Airbus family; it makes sense to update the name."
Within a competitive industry it can be challenging to find the right combination of support and experience to make your aircraft maintenance operation cost effective. "Having a unique MRO facility that includes: a runway capable of handling the largest commercial aircraft, 24-hour security, painting, and full flight line support translates to true savings for our customers," adds Paul Worthington, Senior Director of Marketing for the Evergreen Maintenance Center.
