FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida – Prompted by growing demand for medical flight transport services, REVA Inc., North America's largest fixed-wing air ambulance and medical transportation provider, recently signed a major lease agreement that company officials say will double its Florida footprint. "Over the last two years, REVA Inc. has steadily increased air-ambulance flight hours, service ranges, and has expanded its staff of both certified on-board and ground personnel", said Chief Financial Officer Michael Labinski. "A sustained increase in demand for REVA's services – in all categories and by every measure – has taken us to full capacity in our hangar offices at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport," Labinski said. REVA's new corporate suite will open its doors at 2101 West Commercial Blvd. in the landmark 2101 West Commercial office tower at the Executive Airport's main entrance. The new offices will house more than 6,000 square feet of operations and provide the infrastructure for a new state-of-the-art dispatch center. "REVA's expansion will bring us together under one roof, thereby increasing efficiency and communication that will build collaboration within the group, said Dawn Cerbone, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
