AAR celebrates five years of operations in Canada
In 2017, AAR recognized the value of the experienced workforce in Windsor, Ontario and Trois-Rivières, Quebec, and brought them into the AAR family. Since 2017, these teams have serviced hundreds of aircraft, including 199 in fiscal year 2022, and contributed to the communities in which they operate. Earlier this year, AAR’s Windsor facility offered tours, recognized war veterans from the Canadian military, and supported Aviation Safety Week. AAR’s Trois-Rivières facility recently held a Company barbecue for customers and plans to host community members next month during an open-door event intended to grow interest in aviation.
On September 21, both locations held five-year anniversary celebrations. John Holmes and members of his senior leadership team virtually connected with employees from Windsor and Trois-Rivières during a town hall before arriving at the Windsor facility for an in-person celebration. The Windsor event included a facility tour and visits from Drew Dilkens, who is the Mayor of Windsor and Board Chair of Windsor International Airport, and Mark Galvin, who is the President and CEO of Windsor International Airport. The Trois-Rivières event included a catered lunch, sparkling cider, and goodies and was led by Brian Loomer.
Happy five-year AAR anniversary to our Canadian teams!
