To maximize efficiency, Robinson organized the new space around the flow of parts. “The goal is to ensure


parts are easily accounted for throughout each process, and each process is done quickly and efficiently,” stated John Hernandez, Robinson Repair Station manager.

In addition to the steady flow of repair and overhauled parts, Robinson performs helicopter repairs and overhauls in-house. The new facility is set up to efficiently tear
