Rockwell Collins has opened a new, expanded Seattle service center to enhance the company's ability to provide asset management and testing for Boeing and its 787 customers.

The new facility houses spare pools and updated 787 test equipment. Thirty-eight Rockwell Collins employees work at the new facility, says Rockwell Collins, which announced the news at the Aviation Week MRO Americas show in Miami.

"This expansion will allow us to provide airlines operating the new 787 and other Boeing aircraft with prompt, comprehensive support and spares provisioning through our Global Asset Management programme," says Scott Gunnufson, vice president and general manager of service solutions for Rockwell Collins.
