New Operations Center Opens in Paris, France

MASON, OHIO, January 15 – Rhinestahl Customer Tooling Solutions (CTS), the global leader in aircraft engine tooling and support services and equipment, has expanded its footprint to support the tremendous growth and customer needs in the European region. This expansion strengthens Rhinestahl’s commitment to providing an exceptional customer experience and operational excellence in the region.

The new Paris Operations Center is located just outside of the French metropolitan in Grigny, Essonnes. The building is comprised of office and shop space. The shop space allows for engine stand maintenance and leasing, tool repair and upgrade, cross-docking, strategic tool stocking, FutureDriveNG+ support, and GE’s 360 Foam Wash equipment and service. Rhinestahl’s Paris Operations Center ensures proximity and even greater responsiveness to its customers and OEM partners as their MRO demands increase.

“We are excited to have a facility close to our customers with team members that understand the market and live throughout the region.” This Operations Center allows us to quickly respond to and take care of our customers’ engine tooling needs, stated Dr. Thomas Rupp, directeur général Europe.

“Our European customers told us they wanted a Rhinestahl presence in their region. The opening of the Paris Operations Center in Grigny demonstrates Rhinestahl’s commitment to the European aviation market and enables us to provide a higher level of support within the region,” said Anthony Turner, chief commercial officer.
