Comlux America, the Completion and Service center of the Comlux Group based in Indianapolis IN, celebrated last week the expansion of their VIP completion hangar which now has the capability to house wide body and narrow body aircraft simultaneously. The celebration of the facility expansion took place on the 27th of April 2016, one year from the ground breaking ceremony, in the presence of the employees of Comlux America and the entire management team of the Comlux Group.
