C&L Aerospace Opens New Germany Warehouse

C&L to store aircraft parts inventory in new EU location as they continue to build a global distribution footprint

BANGOR, Maine – C&L Aerospace, a C&L Aviation Group company, has opened a 20,000-square-foot parts warehouse in Leipzig, Germany. This location was carefully researched and chosen in order to provide the most convenient shipping hub for Europe and beyond. The company warehouse will store aircraft parts inventories for ATR 42/72, ERJ 145, E170/190, Saab 340, and more.  

“Positioning a new warehouse in the EU allows us to better support our customers in the European Union and Northern Africa,” said Chris Kilgour, CEO of C&L Aviation Group. “We are increasingly purchasing aircraft and inventories in Europe and it makes sense to utilize those parts in the local market rather than move them to one of our other warehouses. Inventories kept here are in high demand and this warehouse investment reinforces our commitment to operators as their strategic supply partner. It also allows for more favorable shipping rates and times for these operators.”

This move is part of a larger expansion plan by the company designed to get aircraft parts closer to their worldwide customer base. Earlier this year, C&L announced the opening of a warehouse in Wichita, KS, and the company also plans to open an additional warehouse facility in South Africa this spring. C&L currently has warehouses in the United States, England, Scotland, and Australia.


C&L Aviation Group is an industry leader in servicing, maintaining, and supporting operators in the corporate and regional aviation industry. In addition to aircraft and engine sales and leasing programs, C&L offers parts support, heavy maintenance, interior refurbishment, disassembly services, and aircraft management. C&L is headquartered in Bangor, Maine, with offices in the United States, Australia, Africa, Europe, Singapore, and Latin America.
