STS to offer GSE refurbishment
STS Aviation Group has announced the launch of STS GSE Services, a company based in Melbourne, Florida, will be dedicated to offering maintenance, refurbishment, spare parts and warranty services for the aircraft ground support equipment market.
Mark Smith, Group President of STS Aviation, will oversee the operations of STS GSE Services alongside Gabriel Girard, who has been promoted from his former role as Operations Manager for STS Mod Center to Director of Operations for STS GSE Services.
“As President of every company under STS’ Maintenance, Engineering and Modification Group, I am always looking for new and exciting ways to create synergies,” explains Smith. “Take STS Mod Center and STS Line Maintenance, for example. These two companies will now have a go-to company for GSE services, and that company will be internally housed under the STS Aviation Group umbrella. These types of synergies not only save us money, but we’re able to pass on those savings to all of our clients requiring GSE services.”
In addition to servicing aircraft ground support equipment at its aircraft hangar facility in Melbourne, the offshoot will be looking to repair GSE at STS’ growing network of line maintenance stations across the US and the Bahamas.
