Fort Lauderdale, FL / December 6, 2022 / Aviation News – Sheltair has announced that it has relocated its corporate headquarters from Oakland Park, Florida, to the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport. Initially built by Sheltair in 1987, the building was fully renovated in a passiondriven project led by president Lisa Holland in collaboration with Anderson-Moore Construction Corp and architect G. Alvarez Studio, Inc. The two-story, 20,000-square-foot facility will comfortably accommodate nearly 50 employees while allowing plenty of space for additional staff as Sheltair continues to grow.
Sheltair considered the well-being of its employees in the design of the new headquarters. The facility has a private wellness room for nursing mothers or non-emergency medical use, equipped with a refrigerator and comfortable seating. Teams can also function more efficiently with five meeting rooms, including a large board room, a spacious and fully equipped mailroom, and open conference areas. The cubicles and offices in the building were strategically positioned to motivate and bring out the best in each team member.
Sheltair’s new headquarters is also equipped with a fully loaded food and drink café ready for staff to indulge in their favorite cuisine, socialize with fellow teammates, and with direct access to a private back patio. As added inspiration, on the wall behind the seating booth are the words “Don’t just fly, Soar!” Those who prefer a more serene experience will find the second-floor lounge to be just the place for them.
“I am so excited to finally have a corporate presence on an airport, especially FXE, where it all began when my father purchased hangars almost 40 years ago,” said Sheltair President Lisa Holland. “This new office is now consistent with our brand image and will be relevant for years to come for the next generation. I am happy our corporate team has an office they can feel proud of when they step through the doors each morning.”
The location for the new company headquarters was taken into serious consideration by the Family-Owned aviation company. Sheltair, looking towards its mission of Family First- Fuel, Build, Serve, landed on expanding its footprint in FXE, a place that’s been home to the aviation real estate component of the company for over 40 years.
“Sheltair’s decision to relocate their corporate headquarters to the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport is a testament to the tremendous relationship that has been forged with the Airport over the last four decades,” said Rufus James, FXE Airport Director. “This initiative is a credit to Sheltair’s ability to bring continued investment and value to the Airport, which creates jobs and continues to drive economic growth. We look forward to our continued relationship with the Sheltair organization well into the future.”
The doors to the new Sheltair Aviation headquarters at FXE are now open, with a warm reception desk greeting its visitors. Those needing to visit Sheltair’s corporate headquarters or forward correspondence are encouraged to use the address below.
