Dallas Airmotive Consolidates Facilities/ McElroy Returns

Dallas Airmotive has consolidated four locations into a single facility at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. After opening the new 220,000 sq ft engine maintenance and testing facility in 2016, the organization has seen business growth resulting in the need to increase the company’s employee base at the DFW Center location.

Additionally, Hugh McElroy (left), a veteran of the Dallas Airmotive and BBA, has returned to the GES businesses as president and COO. McElroy will focus on the continuous growth of the business and goal to fulfill customer and OEM expectations, the company says.

“I’m confident that Hugh will lead the GES businesses to further achievement of success by building on the positive performance demonstrated by the business during the past two years,” Mark Johnstone, CEO of BBA Aviation said.

McElroy rejoins the team after three years spent as CEO of Dallas Lighthouse for the Blind, a manufacturing and services non-profit organization. McElroy has over 40 years of aviation and aerospace manufacturing and services experience, 16 of which were within BBA Aviation.

“I’m passionate about this business and working with those in a shared vision to continuously improve and exceed customer expectations,” Hugh McElroy, President and COO of Global Engine Services said. “GES continues to be a predominant provider of engine MRO support and with the recent facility upgrades and other operational improvements, I believe we are well-positioned for continued success. I look forward to leading GES to achieve long-term sustainable growth and deliver operational excellence.”
