Gulf Avionics Chooses Kerr County Airport for New HQ
After a year-long site selection process, avionics maintenance and repair operation Gulf Avionics chose Kerrville in Texas’ Hill Country region. Gulf has moved into 7,000 square feet at one of Kerr County Airport’s hangars to house its headquarters and operations. The company will service aviation clients from the greater San Antonio area, and plans to create 50 avionics and aerospace jobs in the next five years.
“Kerr County is positioned in a very unique space within Texas. The beauty and expanse of the Hill Country lends itself to those that enjoy the outdoors and appreciate the feel of wide-open spaces,” said Chris Todtenhausen, vice president of business development for Gulf Avionics and RBR Aviation. “We devoted nearly a year in our search for a better location, which now provides easy access to a large group of targeted customers, and we expect to continue growing.”
Gulf Avionics, an official dealer for manufacturers including Garmin, Honeywell, Trans-Cal and PS Engineering, will be offering inspection and general maintenance assistance to aircraft owners and operators as it grows its presence in Kerrville and the Austin-San Antonio corridor, home to 4.5 million people.
