New ownership at Thrush sets sights on a very bright future

With the stroke of a pen and some celebratory handshakes, the planned ten-week restructuring process at Thrush Aircraft has been completed.

Industry veteran Mark McDonald is the new CEO of Thrush, and he and his team of seasoned professionals are already moving forward with plans to increase the company's capabilities and capacity, drawing on their combined 75 years of aviation experience.

"The past few years have been hard for Thrush and for all of our stakeholders," said Mr. McDonald. "But the issues the company had to overcome had little to do with the quality of our product, and nothing to do with the quality of our people," he continued. "Now, as we begin a new chapter in this legendary company's history, I can tell you that, from the factory floor to the flight line, all of us are genuinely excited about the future of this great brand."

Eric Rojek, vice president of Thrush, added, "We'll have much more to talk about in the weeks ahead and we look forward to seeing everyone at NAAA later this month where we'll be introducing our new leadership team and sharing our latest product news. In the meantime, our customers around the world can continue to count on sales, deliveries, training and support to continue at their best – and for each of our services to improve even more."

Concluded Mr. Rojek: "Reorganization is often a fact of life in the aircraft industry – and today we are the better for it – as Thrush is now highly stable, and very well-positioned for growth and long-term success."
