CTS Engines opens repair facility in Hollywood

May 5, 2012 by  

A new engine service center that is state-of-the art, located next to the Fort LauderdaleHollywood International Airport, was opened by CTS Engines on May 2nd.

According to the Chairman and CEO of CTS Engines, Brian R. Neff, this full-service center for engine repairs and maintenance is important to the development of the company. This center signifies that that CTS Engines is now on the same playing field as other independent engine MROs with the ability to provide distinct quality, value and customer service that are hallmarks of the company.

There are a plasma booth, a weld shop, FPI and full cleaning capabilities, ten full-service engine bays with gantries, a blade tip grinder that runs at high speed, a coordinate measuring machine, gearbox room, vertical and horizontal balancing machines, a vertical machining center and a bearing room in the facility. These services enable CTS to provide close to 70% of all services in-house which make the company’s capabilities commensurate with other full-service engine MROs.

CTS Engines no doubt used flyer printing and poster printing to make this announcement to the public so that the community would be aware of this facility which will have in-house facilities for most engine repairs.

Neff added that the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood area is a good location for CTS Engines as 13% of all MROs in the United States are located in Florida. The market is a good one, he said, and the environment provided by the region and state is friendly to business.

The service center was built at a cost of $25 million and is part of the company’s planned expansion program in the state that includes two high-thrust test stands for engines in Jupiter, Florida.
