A company that provides aviation maintenance tracking services is moving into a larger facility at Northrock Business Park at 34th and Rock Road.

Camp Systems is moving from its 9,000-square-foot space at 8200 E. 34th St. North, No. 1601, to a 14,125-square-foot space at 8201 E. 34th St. North, No. 1101.

The new space is located in a 16,000-square-foot building Anderson Management Co. — the business park’s developer — built last year, Anderson Management said in a news release Monday.

The move is expected to be complete by Feb. 11.

The company provides maintenance tracking and monitoring to owners of aircraft manufactured by Wichita’s three aircraft manufacturers — Cessna, Hawker Beechcraft and Bombardier Learjet — as well as Dassault Falcon, Bombardier Aerospace, Embraer and Boeing Business Jets. Camp is the evolution of an abbreviation for computerized aircraft maintenance programs, according to its website.

The New York-based company operates six offices in the U.S. and Canada and one each in Paris, France, and Hyderabad, India. Company officials said Camp Systems entered Wichita about a decade ago.

In July 2012, it expanded its Wichita operations through the acquisition of local firm Avtrak. Camp Systems is looking to put its local employees and Avtrak staff in a single location with the larger building at Northrock.

“We just wanted to bring everybody together,” John Nelson, Camp Systems senior vice president, said in a telephone interview Monday

Nelson said that the company has 75 employees in Wichita. Most of those employees are “analysts” — airframe and power plant technicians or former production employees of local aircraft manufacturers — who track the maintenance of aircraft owned by flight departments or individuals.

The local office is led by general manager Shawn Crandall.

Camp Systems is a privately held company owned by GTCR, a Chicago-based, multi-billion-dollar private equity firm.
