In a conscious effort to improve the service network, Diamond is actively recruiting service centers to serve new and existing Diamond Operators across the nation. The latest addition to the network is Premier Aircraft Texas at Meacham International Airport.
Premier is familiar with the aviation business as the company operates a sales location at Fort Lauderdale, Florida and operated a sales location in Texas in the 2000s. Premier’s new Texas facility has 7,500 square feet of hangar space and 3,500 square feet of office and support space.
“We are actively focusing our efforts on expanding and improving our service center and support network across the United States,” said Scott McFadzean, CEO of Diamond Aircraft Industries Inc. “Premier’s new location in Texas is ideally located to support Diamond Aircraft’s growing customer base in the Southern United States and is a key addition to our service network as we continue to improve service and support for Diamond Aircraft across the country.”
“Diamond and other general aviation customers in this region will benefit in that they’ll now have one of the best customer service companies located closer to them for all their aircraft support needs,” said Premier’s Founder and CEO Fred Ahles. “We’ve had a long and successful relationship with Diamond Aircraft since Premier was founded in 2003. Our Fort Lauderdale location has been maintaining and upgrading Diamond and other aircraft since 2004, so the team in Texas will have considerable knowledge and expertise within the company they can leverage as they expand their customer base.”
In the coming months, Premier plans to grow the staff at the location to support the expansion. The Texas service operation is led by Director of Maintenance, David Seastead, one of the country’s most experienced Diamond Aircraft technicians.
