Upgrades to the facility’s Hangar #9 are complete and were focused on space optimisation and efficiency, including the installation of new divider curtains, climate controlled paint storage, and upgraded heating and fire suppression systems.
Meanwhile, United Airlines has selected the company’s new capability to paint some of its aircraft in 2022. The contract has already started, with painting of the first United Airlines Boeing 767 aircraft now in process.
Mark Easton, General Manager of HAECO Americas’ Lake City facility, said, “We are delighted to inaugurate our new renovated paint facility with United. This project will be even more rewarding, given our long-standing maintenance and repair partnership with United Airlines.”
