Join us as Fokker Services Americas (a subsidiary of Fokker Services Group or “FSG”) embarks on a journey towards a brighter, more sustainable future in the aviation industry. They are thrilled to announce the sustainable upgrade of our repair facility in LaGrange, GA (USA). The upgrade will include state-of-the-art solar panels, marking a significant milestone in their commitment to environmental stewardship and innovation.

FSG recognizes the importance of a carbon footprint reduction and embracing renewable energy solutions. The upgraded facility exemplifies their dedication to sustainability, while meeting the energy needs of overall operations. With advanced technology and eco-friendly practices, this facility will not only power operations efficiently but also contribute to a cleaner, greener environment.

Partnering with FSG are Principle Construction and Turner Services, who are set to embark on this new chapter of innovation and collaboration in the realm of sustainability. Renowned for spearheading sustainable initiatives such as solar energy installations on rooftops and canopies, electric vehicle charging stations, and wind-powered generators at prominent institutions like Emory University, Hewlett Packard, and Mercedes Benz Stadium, Principle Construction and Turner Services are poised to reaffirm their position as trailblazers in renewable energy.

Craig Winter, President of Fokker Services Americas, casts his gaze upon this project with an optimistic outlook. "As pioneers in the aviation repair market, we take pride in spearheading sustainable practices. Our investment in solar energy underscores our dedication to environmental stewardship and establishes a new standard for our industry peers."

The new solar facility features state-of-the-art technology engineered to optimize energy efficiency while minimizing environmental footprint. "With innovative solar panels and intelligent energy management systems, we're harnessing the sun's power to propel our operations into the future," Winter elaborated. By transitioning to solar energy, FSG will be significantly reducing their carbon emissions and dependence on fossil fuels. This not only benefits their business but also contributes to a healthier planet for future generations. Also, through strategic partnerships and collaborative initiatives, FSG can amplify their impact and drive positive change across the local community and beyond.

Winter concluded on a positive note, stating, "As we unveil our facility’s new solar enhancement, we deeply appreciate your ongoing support as we soar towards a more sustainable world."
