Former North State Aviation managers buy assets of closed company

Richard Craver – Winston Salem Journal

 A local aviation management group is attempting to resurrect for a second time an aircraft maintenance company at Smith Reynolds Airport.

Charlie Creech, president of North State Aviation Holdings LLC, said in a statement Tuesday that his group has purchased the assets of North State Aviation LLC, which abruptly went out of business March 23, eliminating 345 local jobs.

The closed entity specialized in the maintenance, repair and overhaul of large transport aircraft, with United Airlines by far its largest customer.

Creech said the asset purchase “represents a strategic opportunity for the new North State to offer maintenance, repair and overhaul services to the aviation industry.”

Creech could not be reached immediately for further comment, in particular on how challenging it could be for the new company to rehire former employees and secure previous or new contracts. Other aircraft maintenance companies, both regionally and nationally, have conducted job fairs for North State employees.

The assets of inventory, tooling and equipment were purchased in a bid process from NSA Holdings Inc., an entity that held the assets after the closing. The price was not disclosed.

Gary Smith, North State Aviation’s president and chief executive at the time of the closing, was responsible for conducting an inventory of the assets and preparing the request for bids during the wind down of the closed business. Smith said the new entity “had the full support of the Airport Commission of Forsyth County.”

North State Aviation Holdings was formed April 28, according to the N.C. Secretary of State’s website. Listed as managers were Creech and other former North State Aviation LLC officers David Coe, Russell Kota, Joel Marion and Kenda Richards.

Scott Piper, chairman of the airport commission, said in the statement that “we look forward to airplanes and employees once again occupying 4001 North Liberty St.”

In an interview with the Journal, Piper acknowledged that the new North State Aviation entity will face challenges in gaining contracts and employees.

“I’m optimistic from our conversations with the management group that they will be able to accomplish their goals, starting with an appropriate ramp-up of business to become viable once again soon,” Piper said.

When North State Aviation LLC closed, it cited an “unforeseeable significant downturn in business” in a notice required by the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act. The act is a labor law that requires employers with 100 or more employees to provide a 60-day notice before plant closings and mass layoffs.

“Due to declining revenue and difficult business conditions, we were forced to take this action,” Smith said March 23. He said the company was facing increased competition for business from companies outside the United States.

The company’s second location in Kinston, which opened in September 2015, had shut down prior to the local closing. North State had pledged to hire 109 employees in Kinston and to spend $900,000 on capital investments at the Global TransPark site.

North State Aviation LLC took over the airport production space of Pace Airlines, which closed abruptly in September 2009, putting 423 employees, including about 300 locally, out of work.

The company, which opened in early 2011, vowed to have at least 308 employees within four years when it was made eligible for $300,000 in performance-based state incentives. It had 28 employees at that time.

For the Kinston project, the company had been made eligible for up to $250,000 in performance-based economic incentives from the One North Carolina Fund, along with matching local incentives.

North State Aviation to lay off 345 employees

Katie Arcieri – Triad Business Journal

North State Aviation, an aviation maintenance business at the Smith Reynolds Airport in Winston-Salem that officially began in 2011 with a handful of employees, notified the state that it will permanently close its facility at the Smith Reynolds Airport in Winston-Salem starting this week and lay off 345 people due to an “unforeseeable significant downturn in business.”

Company officials told the state in a WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act) notice that North State Aviation was not successful in obtaining capital to avoid or postpone “this unfortunate result.”

Gary Smith, CEO of North State Aviation since last year, did not immediately return a reporter’s phone call. Charlie Creech, president of North State Aviation, also did not return a call this morning.

Smith recently served as a panelist on the TBJ’s Business of Aviation event held March 9.

As of 2015, North State was operating six production maintenance lines for United Airlines and had amassed a client list that includes other major aviation customers.

Smith said recently that the firm had been seeing increased competition from maintenance repair and overhaul in areas south of the U.S. border.

North State had become part of the burgeoning aviation sector in the Triad, which is home to major companies — including Honda Aircraft Co. and HAECO Americas — that combined employ thousands of workers.
