Beringer Aero USA relocates operations to Greenville
November 17, 2016
Beringer Aero USA today announced relocating its U.S. operations to the City of Greenville. By locating in the NEXT Manufacturing Center at 400 Bernie Street, it permits the company to relocate existing positions from its Chicago facility and improve the company’s business services.
Based in Tallard, France, Beringer Aero produces wheels and braking systems for a wide range of aircraft, from light aircraft up to its now-standard supplemental type certificate (STC) for the Pilatus PC-6, through various STC for general aviation, plus complete kits for many popular aircraft. Many of the company’s products are utilized in international air show competitions as the now famous Red Bull Air Races, Reno Air Races or Valdez STOL competition and special projects like the Solar Impulse II that flew around the world with only electric energy.
By relocating its sales and distribution from Chicago, Illinois to Greenville, South Carolina, Beringer Aero anticipates improving customer services within the North American market. To establish its City of Greenville operations, Beringer is leasing light manufacturing and distribution space within the newly established NEXT Manufacturing Center.
