GBA Services has launched a dedicated aerospace division, expanding its participation in maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) and aircraft on ground (AOG) services. One of the new division’s first projects is to create a "dedicated components milk-run service." This will aid line-maintenance activity to support airlines and associated supplier bases by delivering aircraft components airside at all UK airports.
“GBA’s new aerospace division draws together and formalizes existing staff, experience, skill, and resource,” said GBA commercial director Bill Smetham. “In addition, we will be recruiting key individuals with specific experience in this sector, who will help drive and further our ambitions to be a market leader in aerospace logistics.”
The new aerospace division will work in tandem with GBA’s pan-European road operations. This means the company will be able to provide solutions to airlines, as well as meet aftermarket requirements of MROs and OEMs throughout Europe.
