Terre Haute-based Turbines Inc. is one of those hidden gems in the state of Indiana. Turbines Inc. roots were planted at the Terre Haute Airport in 1981 by Jim Mills. Mills, a natural innovator, saw a need for a Turbine overhaul shop that could fill a massive void for those working in agricultural industry around the world by turning fast PT6 overhauls at a fair price. When a PT6 engine needs repair, the agricultural spraying season does not wait, and that is where Turbines Inc. steps in. “We get our clients back to work faster, because of our fine-tuned process. Our efficient process is due to our decades of experience,” Turbines Inc. President Peg Mills says. Turbines Inc. uses the same streamlined process for those in the corporate sector with a PT6 powered aircraft.
Turbines Inc. has maintained an active production schedule through years of continuous growth. They receive PT6 engines from all over the world either by freight, or their customers will fly their aircraft in themselves. It is not uncommon for Turbines Inc. to have clients stop in from Alaska, Indonesia, Canada, or the Bahamas. “Our clients are staying at local hotels and dining at local restaurants during their stay here, providing a little extra boost to our economy,” Mills adds.
One thing that has not changed in more than three decades is their values. “Our strongest asset is our
employees. Many of the employees have been with us for twenty-five plus years. Because of their dedication, the depth of our experience and knowledge is unequaled in any turbine shop in the United States,” Mills says. Turbines Inc. also believes in supporting our veterans. Eighty percent of Turbines, Inc. staff has served in the military.
The biggest competitive advantage Turbines Inc. holds is the ability to supply accurate and fair quotes of their work. Their pricing options help save PT6 engine owners tens of thousands of dollars. “We will not low quote your work to get it into our shop and then blindside you with an outrageous invoice. We guarantee it,” Mills states. Turbines Inc., with the customer’s approval, will use PMA parts in place of OEM parts when available. These are FAA approved parts that meet or exceed the requirements of the OEM with a substantial cost savings. “You will be given the cost of both alternatives. The choice will be yours. We have over 20 years of experience using PMA parts and will always advise the correct parts for your engine and operation,” Mills said.
