Dassault Aviation has completed its acquisition of TAG Aviation’s Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) organization, effective September 2, intended to expand the company’s worldwide service center network. The new organization has been named TAG Maintenance Services (TMS) and is operated as a wholly owned Dassault Aviation affiliate. Dassault has acquired all TAG maintenance operations, including its service centers in Geneva, Farnborough, Le Bourget, Lisbon and its satellite facilities in Luton and Moscow. The company will continue servicing all aircraft types it supported previously, both Falcon and otherwise, and customers will have access to the same outstanding teams and professionals as before. The TAG purchase is part of an ongoing effort by Dassault Aviation to broaden its global service footprint. Since the beginning of the year, Dassault Aviation has also announced the acquisition of the 11 MRO facilities operated by ExecuJet, along with RUAG business aviation operations in Geneva and Lugano, Switzerland.
The RUAG MRO operations will be integrated into TAG Maintenance Services and, like TMS, will continue to cover both Falcon aircraft and other business jet models. Both have a large presence in Geneva, one of the major hubs for business aviation in Europe.
All together, the recent MRO acquisitions have permitted Dassault Aviation to add 19 new facilities and nearly 1,000 service professionals to its global service network.
