KETCHIKAN (AP) -- A national company has purchased Juneau-based Aero Services, Inc., which offers aircraft refueling and cargo handling.
Aero Services owner and founder Dick Roundtree made the announcement at a Ketchikan Chamber of Commerce luncheon Wednesday.
Roundtree opened Aero in 1987 in Juneau and has since expanded the company's operations to Ketchikan, Sitka and Gustavus.
Texas-based company Trajen, Inc., purchased Aero last week, said Trajen financial consultant Joseph Voss.
''It's a great community. We're very happy to be here,'' Voss told the luncheon crowd. ''We invested because we think there is a lot of value here.''
Aero Services will continue to be operated under the Aero name.
