JSSI Parts & Leasing Responds to Rise in Florida Business-Aviation Activity with Parts Warehouse and Sales Team Appointment
JSSI Parts & Leasing, responding to the significant growth of business aviation in South Florida, is launching a strategically located aircraft parts warehouse in Fort Lauderdale.
A business unit of Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI), an independent provider of all-OEM maintenance support and financial services to the business-aviation industry, JSSI Parts & Leasing’s latest warehouse will deliver a more efficient, cost-effective and quicker aircraft-parts procurement service to operators and maintenance facilities in the area at a time when business aviation is increasingly migrating to Florida.
The new warehouse underlines the company’s offering as an all-OEM aircraft-parts provider, able to support customers with strategically located parts across virtually all makes and models of business aircraft. JSSI Hourly Cost Maintenance program clients and JSSI Parts & Leasing customers will benefit from in-region stocking.
“We are excited to open our first satellite location to support our valued customers in the rapidly expanding South Florida corridor, where we’ve seen increasingly strong demand for parts. As we continue to monitor growing demand in key markets, we plan to open additional warehouses to aid operators and MROs in other business-aviation hubs around the world where our services are needed most,” says Ben Hockenberg, president, JSSI Parts & Leasing.
In addition, JSSI Parts & Leasing has brought on industry veteran Eric Callahan to focus on part sales in the Southeast, including Florida.
“We can significantly shorten turnaround times by stocking critical parts for customers exactly where they need them,” says Eric Callahan, regional sales director, JSSI Parts & Leasing. “The new warehouse provides a convenient base for us to establish new partnerships with key operators in this high-growth area, and I look forward to supporting customers and industry partners throughout the region and beyond.”
JSSI currently serves around 20% of the global business-jet fleet. These customers not only benefit from JSSI’s scale but also from the company’s industry knowledge, anticipation of market trends, and enhanced MRO availability.
Across its three warehouses, JSSI Parts & Leasing maintains a strategic inventory of approximately 50,000 parts to support 80% of airframes and 90% of engines. The company provides customers with sophisticated supply-chain support, ranging from fully outsourced procurement to on-demand parts fulfillment.
