Garrett/Piedmont consolidates engine work

A recent announcement by Garrett Piedmont Hawthorne that it is closing engine repair facilities at MacArthur Airport on Long Island, N.Y., Columbus, Ohio, and Springfield, Ill., spares operations at Augusta, Ga., Houston and Los Angeles, but makes no mention of Charlottesville, Va., where the firm completed a multi-million dollar hangar in May.

Garrett plans to consolidate operations from the closed facilities at the Georgia, Texas and California plants, and have its Springfield operation focus on airframe and avionics work, interior refurbishing and aircraft painting, company officials said.
