Marc Savoie Named Manager Of Montreal Center
With the walls now going up, Innotech Aviation’s new
state-of-the art 41,000 paint preparation and application facility
is scheduled to open doors to clients in July, 2008. The company
began its construction in late November last year, having finalized
the design in the Fall.
The new paint capability completes Innotech Aviation’s
service offering at Montreal’s Pierre Elliot Trudeau
International Airport, Dorval - completions, refurbishments,
maintenance, avionics, engineering, and now paint.
Marc Savoie, now onboard with Innotech as the paint facility
operations manager, is finalizing the operational plans and
building his new team. Savoie has many years of direct management
experience in the painting and completion of business aircraft. He
also has a strong mechanical background as a licensed M1 and M2
Canadian aircraft maintenance engineer.
"I welcome the challenges in building North America’s
newest aircraft paint building, incorporating the industry’s
highest standards," said Savoie. "Providing customer satisfaction,
understanding customers’ expectations, and employees’
health and safety will be my top priorities as I fulfill this
"We are pleased to announce the appointment of Marc as manager
of our new paint facility," says Rob Brooks, company VP and general
manager. "With this hangar in place, we are fully prepared to meet
all of our customers’ completions and refurbishment needs. We
are already accepting bookings for this new offering."
The paint shop is designed to accept business aircraft as large
as the Bombardier Global XRS business jet. It will be the most
modern and technologically advanced hangar for high-quality paint
applications in North America and will complete the company’s
full-service capability both for in-service and new-completion
Environmentally friendly, with state-of-the-art filters and an
independent waste water cleaning system, the facility will have
also feature variable speed airflow, eliminating the need to
pressurize the paint bay; and the capability to apply paint
electrostatically. The paint bay is uniquely designed to ventilate
and spray with a nose to tail cross-draft. These features provide a
cleaner application, better adhesion and substantially less paint
waste than with conventional spray methods.
Innotech Aviation has been a Bombardier Preferred Completion
Center since 2005, and is also an authorized maintenance facility
for Challenger and Global Express business jets.
