Fairbanks Morse announced recently the opening of its 8,000-sq.-ft. Mayport Service Center in Jacksonville Beach, Fla.

The $350,000 facility is located in close proximity to core customers such as the Mayport Naval Station, Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, and other U.S. Navy and Coast Guard installations.

“The opening of our Mayport Service Center is another step that Fairbanks Morse is taking to fulfill its promise to deliver world-class service to our customers,” George Whittier, Fairbanks Morse’s CEO, said in a statement announcing the opening. “From this facility, we are stocking a wide range of inventory to make parts available when and where our customers need them. This is just the beginning of our broader plan for a geographic expansion that extends our aftermarket services to help customers meet their mission-critical power needs.”

The Mayport Service Center will be staffed with certified OEM technicians to provide local engine, motor and controls maintenance and repair services to improve performance and reliability.

A wide range of Fairbanks Morse engine and Ward Leonard motor and controls inventory will be available at the service center to reduce the amount of time for installation, repair and maintenance services. The move is part of the company’s renewed emphasis on expediting aftermarket services to military and commercial maritime customers across the nation.
