Aircraft Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul
HAECO Americas provides aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services and aerospace manufactured products to a broad array of commercial, government and private customers. HAECO Americas is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the HAECO Group, one of the largest global providers of MRO services and a leading provider of interiors products and services.
Since its founding in 1990 as Triad International Maintenance Company (TIMCO), HAECO Americas has grown beyond its core airframe, base maintenance business by adding engine MRO services, aircraft seat manufacturing and PMA parts, comprehensive engineering design and interiors manufacturing through its HAECO Americas division and line maintenance services at a large number of airports through its HAECO Americas Line Services network. Headquartered in Greensboro, North Carolina, HAECO Americas businesses operate at locations throughout the United States.
HAECO Americas provides world class airframe MRO and modification services (also collectively called aircraft base maintenance) from three multi-hangar locations in the United States: Greensboro, North Carolina; Macon, Georgia; and Lake City, Florida.
HAECO Americas Airframe Services offers light and heavy scheduled maintenance checks, exterior and interior modifications installations, upgrades and conversions for commercial, government and private aircraft. The airframe MRO operation employs over 1,000 mechanics, many of whom are certificated, and uses over 1.4 million square feet of hangar and office space at its three locations.
Manufacturing and Shop Support Services
HAECO Americas has extensive shop facilities to support the repair, fabrication and overhaul of structural and composite components and flight controls removed from customer aircraft on site for airframe maintenance visits. This proximity to the hangar reduces overall aircraft downtime and eliminates shipping and handling costs.
In addition, HAECO's shop facilities manufacture parts and can repair components for off-site or non-airframe check customers.
Capabilities include the machining and fabrication of a broad range of composites, aluminum, titanium, steel and other exotic metal components and subassemblies for commercial and military aircraft. In addition, all non-destructive testing (NDT) and inspection capabilities can be addressed. HAECO's support shops specialize in one-of-a-kind prototype and production requirements, and can take a project from concept through delivery and installation.
