Grand opening for ACL Airshop’s manufacturing centre


ACL Airshop will hold the grand opening of its manufacturing centre in Greenville, South Carolina today (Friday 17 May) at 4pm.

Called “A Celebration of Aerospace Growth in South Carolina”, the ribbon-cutting event highlights the global growth of ACL Airshop.

The company has doubled in the past three years with its fleet of unit load devices doubling through internal investment from under 25,000 units to over 50,000 and is still increasing.

Its supply chain for manufacturing resources stretches from Germany to China and the company has doubled its service footprint to more than half of the world’s top 100 air cargo airports.

Steve Townes, CEO of ACL Airshop and founder of Ranger Aerospace says: “We could have outsourced this entire expansion to lower cost overseas locations, but instead we made a deliberate decision to build and grow right here at home. All around the world, we are continuously improving ACL Airshop with better capacity, upgraded facilities, new technology and logistics systems offerings, and other enhancements for our many scores of airlines customers.”
