Textron Aviation has unveiled the company’s largest global parts distribution facility at its headquarters in Wichita, Kansas. 

180,000 sq ft of space will be added to the facility. Its larger footprint will allow for increased parts inventory investment, supporting parts availability for new and existing models of Cessna, Beechcraft and Hawker aircraft.

The expansion also aims to improve customer experience and will have a new dedicated lane for Textron customers to drop off or pick up parts in person.

“Adding 180,000 square feet to our headquarters facility provides expedited support to our customers around the globe and continues our investment in parts inventory,” said Brad White, Senior Vice President of Global Parts and Distribution. “The expansion of our parts distribution operations is a testament to Textron Aviation’s commitment to designing and delivering the best aviation experience for customers.”

Work on the facility began in October 2022 and was designed and completed by companies PEC Engineering and GLMV Architecture, both local to Textron Aviation’s headquarters.
