VT MAE has grand opening

PENSACOLA, Fla. – The VT MAE maintenance, repair and overhaul facility at Pensacola International Airport marked its grand opening today with a ribbon-cutting on the north side of the airport. The $46 million project in Pensacola is the second MRO operation for VT MAE in the region. It has had an MRO in Mobile, Ala., that employs over 1,000 workers since 1991. Florida Gov. Rick Scott was on hand to mark the grand opening in Pensacola. Workers already have their first project, a UPS aircraft that’s in the brand new hangar for routine maintenance. The MRO will eventually have more than 400 workers. VT MAE is part of VT Systems of Alexandria, Va., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Singapore-based ST Engineering. (Source: GCAC, 06/08/18)
