Egret Aviation Opens First North American Office Location

Share Article

Location expansion to Dallas, Texas indicates Egret Aviation’s continued rapid growth across the globe.

Egret will begin offering leasing options to help airlines focus their funds elsewhere for more crucial projects. This will also include a ‘swap program’ that will replace a damaged cart within 48 hours or less while waiting for repair.

Egret Aviation, an international production company that specializes in the designing and manufacturing of reliable and cost-effective non-electric inflight galley equipment continues to position itself as second largest supplier of galley carts across the aviation industry. Despite the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic Egret Aviation continues to expand, including the opening of a US-based operation in order to better serve their North America based customers.

The expansion coincides with Egret Aviation’s partnership with Somerset Capital Group, one of the oldest and largest independent leasing organization in the United States. Together, Egret Aviation and Somerset Capital group will redefine efficient asset management of galley equipment, enabling airlines to be more business agile despite these challenging times. Building a coalition across commercial aviation, Aereos Interior Solutions, also support Egret’s expansion into North America.

"Our experience and feedback from the regions around North America have identified a need for a full-service operation," says Fran Hume, Director of Business, Egret Americas. “We want to be able to service our customers as effectively as possible. By partnering with Somerset Capital Group we will be able to provide them with more customized solutions. Along with the opening of an office in the U.S., we will have our feet on the ground in an important market, making Egret Aviation an even stronger leader in the industry.”

Sensing the need for a new approach to inflight galley equipment, and with support from Somerset Capital Group’s technology, Egret will begin offering leasing options to help airlines focus their funds elsewhere for more crucial projects. This will also include a ‘swap program’ that will replace a damaged cart within 48 hours or less while waiting for repair and will tap into Somerset Capital Group’s monetization of non-productive or owned assets through flexible refinancing or sale leaseback. These ‘ex-stock’ versions will be housed at the new Dallas location for easy distribution across the North American region.

Mrs. Hume continues, “Somerset Capital Group is a well-respected name in the industry, and Egret is known to be a remarkably well-made product. Our customers constantly praise the high quality of workmanship and functionality. By tapping into the resources and support that Somerset Capital Group has available, our customers will feel confident that their heavily used products can withstand constant usage without issue. This attention to detail saves both time and money – something airlines demand.”
