Airline Services Components (ASC) opened a 33,000 sq ft warehouse, logistics and HQ facility in Manor Royal, Crawley, very close to London Gatwick Airport (LGW), a move driven by ASC’s need to accommodate its rapidly growing stock of Airbus A320 family and Boeing 737 Series rotable components along with a wide range of wheels and brake assemblies.
Chris Hooley, ASC’s managing director commented, “We recognised earlier this year that ASC was well ahead of its initial business plan and consequently plans for expansion were brought forward. This fantastic new facility will house our ever expanding stock, make our shipping process even faster and give us the room we need for future growth.”
ASC also works with a number of other OEMs and high quality repair shops in order to assist in the provision of nose to tail component services for its growing customer base.
ASC is currently working closely with leading aircraft braking specialist Messier Bugatti providing retrofit management expertise for a range of programmes including the new carbon brake on the Boeing 737NG fleet and is also involved in the Boeing 787 programme. In addition, ASC provides a rotable repair management service for a growing number of operators.
