Principals of PART received a Chinese Delegation from City of Qingdao, China on January 3, 2014.

Annual traffic projects will exceed 38 million people.
The city and provincial (Shandong Province) officials have made tremendous efforts in growing the aviation sector of Qingdao. One of the most important agenda items of the delegation during this trip was to attract PART to open an MRO in the new airport. After touring PART’s entire operation, Major Mr. Zhang, De Ping spent two days with PART’s principals, David Green and Janet Vincent, for detailed discussions on the potential expansion of PART.
“We are very excited about the opportunity with China, and especially with the City of Qingdao, which happens to be our Managing Member Janet’s hometown,” said David. “We hope to open our Chinese Division in 2014. Besides Qingdao, we have also been in discussions with the City of Tianjin”.
