PPS provides aircraft propeller repair and overhaul services for U.S. government agencies, including the departments of Homeland Security, Defense, Transportation, Commerce and Justice.

"We've been working on extending our capability into the helicopter market for a number of years and built our current facility to accommodate both dynamic components and rotor blades for the helicopter market," said General Manager PPS Sammy Oakley.
