BYDGOSZCZ, Poland, June 1 (UPI) -- BAE Systems, which has operated in Poland for more than a decade, has formed a new partnership to offer servicing of the country's C-130 aircraft.

Its new local partner is Wojskowe Zakłady Lotnicze Nr 2 S.A., which operates one of the largest aviation facilities in Poland for overhauling, maintaining and upgrading aircraft.

"With complimentary capabilities, our companies form a strong aviation team in the region," said Floyd McConnell, vice president of Integrated Aviation Solutions for BAE Systems.
