Cessna Chooses Wichita’s Law Company to Build New Mesa, Ariz. Citation Service Center
Wichita, Kan.,– Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, announced today it has selected The Law Company of Wichita, Kans., as the general contractor for its new Citation Service Center in Mesa, Ariz.
Slated to open in early 2009, the new service center will feature a high-bay, 101,000-square-foot maintenance hangar adjacent to the Williams Gateway Airport in Mesa. Total value of the project is in excess of $20 million.
“The Law Company is a well-known general contractor that has successfully completed a number of projects for Cessna over the years, including Cessna’s Wichita and Orlando Citation service centers,” said Mark Paolucci, senior vice president, Customer Service. “We are, of course, very excited about opening a new service center in Mesa, and we’re confident our future customers will find our facility as one of the most modern in the world, and we know they will enjoy the Mesa area.”
The Law Company, established in 1959, is a leading commercial contractor with experience in a variety of large construction projects for public and private owners in 38 states. Most notably, The Law Company was the general contractor for Cessna’s Mid-Continent International Airport-based Wichita Citation Service Center, which, at more than 477,000 square feet, is one of the largest buildings in Kansas.
The new Mesa service center will be part of Cessna’s global network of company-owned or authorized service centers, one of the most comprehensive business aircraft service networks in the world. Cessna is consistently ranked at the top of the industry in third-party customer support surveys, one of the factors supporting Cessna’s continued leadership in annual business jet deliveries.
