Another Great Year for Growth
For a year that started out with the most devastating ice storm Wichita, Kansas had seen in decades, 2005 turned out to be an extremely productive and profitable year for AIRCO Group. Our continued commitment to our community included an American Red Cross blood drive, a truckload of donations for Hurricane Katrina relief, a fundraiser for Special Olympics, a canned food drive, and an Angel Tree for the holiday season.

AIRCO Group's employees are its most valuable asset, and the years of experience within our team well serves both our internal and external customers. In 2005 alone, AIRCO Group celebrated the 15-year anniversaries of six employees, and the 20-year anniversary of yet another employee! The synthesis between our new employees and AIRCO veterans is the reason our team improves with each passing year.

AIRCO Group sets aside time each year to evaluate the company's progress and set specific goals for the following years. These efforts benefit not only our employees and internal processes, but also our customers, as we ensure that our performance meets the highest standards of quality customer service. This is a continued commitment by AIRCO Group, one in which we pride ourselves. Our most recent planning session has set our sights on many improvements and additions to the products and services we offer, including offering equipment and repair capabilities for CRJ/ERJ aircraft, increased exposure in the Pacific rim of Asia, and with the addition of yet another office for sales representation, offering service to the growing market in the Indian sub-continent. All of these directives, in addition to the products and services AIRCO Group has offered worldwide for decades, require a firm and constant commitment to customer service. This means more than merely a polite voice on the phone. Our employees, especially our sales staff, are committed to offering the personal attention that each and every customer deserves. AIRCO Group's sales representatives attended more industry conferences and trade shows in 2005 than ever before, not to mention the many on-site visits, both of which allow them to invest more in their relationships with customers than a phone call can allow. In pursuit of these goals, our company is dedicated to opening the doors to talented and forward-thinking individuals who contribute to our commitment to excellent customer service.
