New Bern Distribution and
Service Center Expansion
Pilot John International, formerly Carolina
GSE, announces the completion of
its aircraft equipment distribution and
service center expansion in New Bern,
North Carolina.
PJi has doubled its space from 20,000
square feet to 40,000 square feet with
the support of the building reuse grant
awarded by the North Carolina Department
of Commerce's Building Reuse Program.
The additional physical space will
support PJi's rising demand for aviation
equipment with increased inventory and
storage capacity, along with increased
for clean air legislative initiatives, " said
Keith Sawyer, Avfuel's manager of alternative
fuels. " Furthermore, the team at
Portland's Hillsboro Aviation is passionate
about environmental conservation, which
made it the perfect first FBO partner to
establish SAF supply in the state. We are
thankful for its team for leading the SAF
initiative in the Pacific Northwest as we
work tirelessly with Neste to make SAF
an available alternative throughout business
aviation. "
The first 8,000-gallon truckload

area, boosting its warehouse and office
space by a further 27,000 square feet.
The additional building, due to commence
operations in October, features
eight landside doors for cargo deliveries
and collections, and a 20-foot truck
dock. As well as caster deck storage
for loaded pallets and containers, WFS
also plans to install a 7,000-squarefoot
area for ambient shipments and
dedicated storage for temperature-controlled
cargoes requiring a 2-8 degrees
C environment.
Once the new facility opens, WFS
will increase its total cargo handling
space at the airport to nearly 350,000
square feet. This latest expansion is
designed to support existing airline
customers - including new contracts
gained in the past 12 months with
Sri Lankan Airlines, Gulf Air and All
Nippon Airways. The additional building
will also provide growth capacity.
" After strong growth in our tonnage
throughput in 2021, and with cargo
volumes expected to increase by a further
25 percent this year, it's important
that we are proactive in ensuring we
have the capacity and infrastructure
our current airline customers need to
support their products and services. A
key focus for Building 578 is to expand
our perishables handling capabilities.
This investment also gives us more
space to welcome new carriers, which
we expect to do by the end of the year, "
said Paul Carmody, WFS managing
director - UK Cargo.
