Mach 1 Air Services announces its long-planned international expansion. The Arizona-based company has opened offices in Shanghai and Singapore, as well as Guadalajara, Mexico, and plans to open six more offices throughout China in Q3.
‘Our international expansion allows Mach 1 to meet the needs of its customers in ways very few of our competitors can match,’ said Michael Entzminger, CEO and founder of Mach 1. ‘By investing in China and Mexico, Mach 1 continues its long tradition of developing customer-centric platforms.’
What started as a three-man freight company working in a 900-square-foot office in 1988 has since grown into a multinational, $100 million company with more than 240 employees and 22 offices. Mach 1 clients include General Motors, Ford and Technicolor.
Jason Quagliata, Mach 1 vice president of global development, will lead the Asia operation. This summer, Quagliata also plans to open offices in Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Xiamen, Ningbo and Qingdao.
George Ochoa, president of Mach 1 Aero Servicios, the company’s Mexican subsidiary, will lead the Guadalajara office with an experienced team of sales, operations and customer service personnel. This office will handle business in Guadalajara, Zapopan, Tlaquepaque, Tlajomulco, El Salto and Tonala, and will complement Mach 1 Aero Servicios’ other facilities in Mexico City, Monterrey and Queretaro.
Collectively, Asian and Mexican revenues are forecasted to drive continued growth for Mach 1.
