Redefining What it Means for You to Supply Aviation Parts.

We recognize that PMA parts allow you to reduce your costs while maintaining the quality you are committed to. That is why we have built the capability to not only distribute high-quality PMA parts, but also the skills required to work with you to develop and manufacture certified PMA parts designed and manufactured to your specifications. From build-to-print assemblies and exotic material machining to preferred-supplier status, we provide you with intellectual property and complete supply chain management, along with integrated aftermarket insight. It’s just another example of how we can enhance how you supply parts to aviation companies.
