William Hynett, left, Britten-Norman Group CEO, and Stuart McNeilis, head of sales and customer relations for Marshall Aviation Services, mark a year-long agreement for Marshall to paint up to 15 Islanders and Defenders.

Marshall Aviation Services, part of the UK’s Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, has been named a preferred supplier by Isle of Wight-based manufacturer Britten-Norman for exterior paint work on up to 15 of B-N’s Islander and Defender. Under the one-year agreement, Marshall Aviation Services will paint both new and refurbished aircraft at its Broughton, North Wales facility.

Marshall Aviation Services performed such work on a Britten-Norman Islander in August. Work on the first newly painted Islander has recently been completed.

Marshall Aviation Services offers a two-bay paint facility and paint design service capable of handling up to three super-midsize jets simultaneously, up to the size of the Falcon 2000. The paint facility is complemented by a design studio offering a full upholstery and trim service for seats, divans and other interior needs, all of which is supported by EASA Part 21 design organization approval status.

In addition to interior and exterior refurbishment, the Broughton facility provides MRO, aerostructures, avionics, design engineering and modifications.
