In March 2012 TCR did a sale and rent-back operation with Aviapartner’s GSE in Dusseldorf Airport. Since then, TCR has also been supporting Aviapartner with additional equipment to help its strong growth in the airport.
TCR’s presence in Dusseldorf Airport has also triggered interest from other ground handlers, such as the Dusseldorf Airport Ground Handling company (FDGHG) who decided to make a European tender for the outsourcing of their GSE fleet. In September 2012, TCR was awarded with the sale and rent-back contract for the FDGHG GSE fleet.
TCR’s headquarters for Germany will be located in Dusseldorf, where Mark Durber will be the General Manager. Mark has been in the handling and GSE business for over 20 years. He will be supported by a local team of about six people.
