UK company grows in civil helicopter maintenance

Vector Aerospace : 13 March, 2014  (Company News)
Vector Aerospace is using its experience in military aircraft maintenance to grow its portfolio of customers in the civil aviation sector
UK company grows in civil helicopter maintenance

Vector Aerospace UK is continuing to develop its civil client portfolio following the completion of yet another contract for a major fixed wing operator.

"November 2013 witnessed our initial foray into the commercial airline sector and demand has progressively increased since", said Mick O'Connor, the Component Services Business Director at Vector Aerospace UK. "Historically we have supported military rotary and fixed wing customers and it is evident from our growing order book that the expertise and experience we have developed in this sector is highly prized by civil and commercial aviation customers".

The recent contract delivery saw the Mobile Repair Team (MRT), based at Vector Aerospace's Almondbank facility located near Perth in Scotland, complete the on-wing plating repair to a high specification and to the airline's satisfaction. The company's growing, civil fixed wing portfolio has coincided with an investment in a site based composite repair capability, allowing an expansion of the MRT to offer customers on-wing welding, sheet-metal, NDT, brush plating and composite repairs.  Vector Aerospace's five year growth strategy has highlighted the civil and commercial aviation market as a prime sector for development - leveraging its experience and knowledge in defence to achieve similar results in this target market.

"The growing breadth and depth of the capability at Almondbank provides Vector Aerospace with a distinct competitive advantage across a wide range of aircraft components", said Michael Tyrrell, Managing Director for Vector Aerospace UK. "The site offers a unique, affordable and comprehensive MRO service, strategically positioning the company for further success in the future".

The strategic and flexible nature of the capability at Almondbank was recently demonstrated by the deployment of some of its mobile repair teams to the Philippines in order to aid foreign militaries in their efforts to deliver humanitarian aid to typhoon victims. "Our ability to deploy teams across the globe to operate upon aircraft on the ground is a unique asset of which we are especially proud", said Mick O'Connor. "Not only does it demonstrate the benefits of our investment in a highly trained workforce, but it is also proving an attractive offering to existing and prospective civil clients".
