AMS Expands Facility
Chesterland, OH -- Aerospace Maintenance Solutions (AMS) announces that it is increasing the size of its Chesterland, Ohio headquarters in May of 2010. The expansion is partially the result of increased sales volume. AMS has increased its annual revenues by double digits during the past two years. "More products coming in the doors means we need more room for storing a wider variety of avionics inventory, especially for the military aircraft we service," says AMS Accountable Manager John Dooley. Among the new business is a contract with the US Coast Guard that supports long-range surveillance missions needed by the US Department of Homeland Securities.
The facility expansion is also partially the result of recent increase of full-time and part-time staff at AMS. The hires have been mostly certified technicians, but there have also been hires to support accounting, marketing, and other business operations.
AMS facilities in Chesterland, Ohio also include an isolated clean room that, along with the rest of the facility, is ISO 9001:2000 compliant and FAA 145 certified. The clean room will remain unchanged during the renovations.
AMS is an ISO 9001: 2000 compliant and FAA-145 certified depot supporting the U.S. Air Force, Lockheed Martin, U.S. Coast Guard, DynCorp International, Department of State, and various U.S. Government Prime contractors, and numerous aircraft parts brokers. The company works directly with the Department of Defense (DOD) to obtain current Air Force Technical Orders, Army Depot Maintenance Work Requirements, and Navy NAVAIR technical manuals. AMS is "source approved" and has U.S. Air Force approval on many repair processes, some of which were developed in house.
