To accommodate existing and future business growth, CAV Ice Protection will open a North American Operations Center at New Century Airport (KIXD) in Olathe, Kansas, near Kansas City. The move has been planned since the fall 2012 and will be effective April 2, 2013.
“We are very excited to announce our new North American Operations Center in the Kansas City area,” said Ken Weaver, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “CAV Ice Protection’s ongoing growth and future business plans will result in new ice protection products and services, greater support and expanded capabilities at our facilities in the U.K., Poland, Mexico and the United States.”
CAV Ice Protection plans to grow its new Operations Center in the Kansas City, Kansas area by as many as twelve people, including engineering, technical, sales and administrative staff. Positions added will be in operations, sales, warehousing, distribution and product support.
“After over a decade in Salina, Kansas, CAV Ice Protection is relocating its North American headquarters to the Kansas City area. The transition will benefit our aircraft ice aircraft protection customers through more efficient operations and better service,” Weaver said.
