Twin Commander Aircraft Heads East

New Headquarters Are In North Carolina

Twin Commander Aircraft LLC is moving from its long-time home in Washington State to North Carolina. The move should be complete by the end of 2009.

The company's new home will be in Creedmoor, northeast of Durham. Twin Commander will share a large office and warehouse complex with Firstmark Aerospace and Aircraft Belts, Inc. All three companies are wholly owned subsidiaries of Firstmark Corporation of Richmond, Virginia. Firstmark Aerospace acquired Twin Commander Aircraft LLC in August 2008.

The move from Arlington, Washington, to Creedmoor has been taking place over the summer in stages. Records and tooling have already been transferred. The final step-relocating the extensive parts inventory to Creedmoor-will begin in early November following a required FAA audit of the Creedmoor facility. The physical move will take place in two stages to maintain continued availability of parts throughout the entire process.

Twin Commander Aircraft President Matt Isley said the company's goal is "zero service interruptions" during the move to North Carolina. "We have worked with Twin Commander operators and our authorized service centers to anticipate their parts needs through the end of the year," he said. "This will help us manage distribution of parts so that no one experiences a delay in receiving a needed part while the move is underway."

Factory technical support services will not be affected by the move, Isley added.

"We have taken great pains to ensure that our move to North Carolina will enable us to continue delivering the same quality of service and parts that our operators have come to expect for their Commanders. We have spent many months training new staff to ensure a smooth transition. In fact, several key members of our Arlington staff are relocating with us to our new home in Creedmoor, and a few have already done so."

Isley said no major changes are planned in the company's parts-supply strategy. "We have many outstanding vendors in the Washington area, and we plan on maintaining and growing those relationships even as we head east," he noted. "Our suppliers have been, and continue to be, a major part of our success and deserve a lot of the credit for the quality and performance of the parts that keep Commanders flying at the top of their class."
