Kelly Aviation Center said it has changed its name to Lockheed Martin Commercial Engine Solutions.
“Since 1999, we have been proud to be Lockheed Martin´s only jet engine MRO service provider,” said Amy Gowder, vice president and general manager of LMCES. “Over the past three years, our legacy of improving on-wing performance for the military has grown to include commercial customers. We believe our new name reflects that growth.”
Another major reason to change the company´s name was the acquisition of a second engine MRO facility in Montreal in 2013 that expanded the company´s customer base into additional international markets.
