California-based 145 Repair Station’s relocation to bring new jobs to Oklahoma
PAS MRO, a world-class independent Bearing Return to Service and Component Repair and Overhaul Company, announces plans to relocate its operations from Irvine, Calif., to Bristow, Okla.
PAS MRO’s relocation, which is expected to be completed by November 2020, will create 37 new jobs and represents an investment of $3.2 million to the local economy.
This woman-owned small business provides the Aerospace (Commercial & Military), Industrial, Power Generation and Marine Industries with comprehensive inspection, repair, refurbishment and overhaul alternatives.
PAS MRO is an FAA Certified Part 145 Repair Station & EASA Certified for Aircraft Airframe & Powerplant Anti-Friction Bearing Overhaul & Inspection and Accessory Repair and Overhaul. PAS MRO is alsoISO9001/AS9110 Certified.
PAS MRO provides services in the fields of bearings, components, assemblies and controlled inspections servicing the aircraft, marine and ground power industries. PAS MRO provides Bearing Return to Service™ – Bearing Level II Overhaul & Level I Inspection on airframe and engine anti-friction bearings; component-level inspection/repair/overhaul, assembly-level repair & overhaul and controlled/critical inspection & test.
PAS MRO strives to ensure the highest standard of quality goes into each bearing it receives. Bearings that have been removed during engine or airframe component overhaul & repair are often discarded even though they are still in good, serviceable or repairable condition. PAS MRO can assist a removed from service and operationally proven bearing to ‘fully realize’ it’s designed life through Level I inspection and/or Level II refurbishment. PAS’s Bearing Return to Service has proven to be an excellent alternative when long lead times on new bearings causes extended aircraft down-time.
PAS MRO serves Airframe & Engine MRO centers; Components Repair Stations; Parts/Component Distributors; Military Operations, OEMs and Prime Contractors. Currently, PAS MRO provides its MRO services to over 150 active customers, including: The Boeing Company, United Airlines, China Airlines, USAF, US Army, US Navy/NAVAIR, Chromalloy, Consolidated Turbine Specialists, Universal Turbine Parts, Prime Turbines, Aero Products, Pacific Gear Systems, Summit Helicopters, Dakota Air Parts, Turbines Inc. Turbine Engine Consultants and Air Technology Engines.
PAS MRO’s component MRO service offering includes repair & overhaul of mechanical and electro-mechanical components, to include hydraulic pumps, linear actuators, airframe gearboxes, rotor blade (composite) tips and other line replaceable units.
PAS MRO also provides assembly repair and overhaul services which allow its customers to offload any assembly work, large or small, whether it be repair logistics, reassembly and test of accessory assemblies, parts and/or LRUs from airframes, turbine engines or industrial applications.
“We are thrilled that PAS MRO has decided to join Oklahoma’s thriving aerospace community and add to the already established aerospace cluster in Bristow,” said Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt, “Many of its customers already have operations in the state and Oklahoma’s ever-expanding MRO footprint presents numerous new business opportunities for PAS.”
“When it came time to relocate PAS MRO, Oklahoma was an easy selection,” said Jim Agee, PAS MRO President. Its business-friendly policies and climate, availability of highly trained workers with the specific MRO-related technical skills sought by our company, the proximity to our customer base and the lower costs of doing business and living in Oklahoma; were all factors that lead to our decision.”
