Honeywell has opened its first aviation service center in Latin America in São José dos Campos, in Brazil. On site, the company will offer services such as aircraft parts replacement, repair and overhaul.
“The new Honeywell Service and Maintenance Center is one of the few places prepared to offer specialized support to companies in the industry, including the executive, commercial, defense and general aviation segments,” said Laurent Memvielle, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Aerospace Latin America. “This launch is an important step toward the expansion of the company’s operations in Brazil, where we aim to develop more facilities and meet our customers’ demands quickly and efficiently.”
São José dos Campos was chosen for its history in the aviation market and the proximity of Embraer and the city of São Paulo, besides other urban centers in the southeast region where the main airlines in the country are located. The Service and Maintenance Center is in the Technological Park of São José dos Campos.
Aerospace is one of Honeywell’s four business units and has been responsible for aviation innovations such as the first autopilot flight control and the first commercial weather radar system. In total, the company’s portfolio has 84 product lines that focus on creating more economical, practical and environmentally friendly airplanes.
