April 20, 2009: In a move to unify their four divisions providing services to the aerospace industry, STS Holdings, Inc. today announced the company name will be changed to STS Aviation Group and all service divisions will carry the STS name. According to company President, Philip J. Anson, Jr., “This move does not represent a change in our management team or the way we operate, we believe it will give added visibility to the fact that we are a unified company with a network of services designed to support the aerospace industry.” Anson also indicated the company philosophy is and will continue to be – Solutions To Keep You Flying.
STS Services, the 24 year-old personnel recruitment division, has been renamed STS AeroStaff Services to better reflect the nature of their services. ATR Line Maintenance, acquired by STS Holdings in May 2006, will now be known as STS Line Maintenance. MOS Engineering, which has been a part of STS for the past two years, will be renamed STS Engineering Solutions. STS Component Solutions, the parts and supply chain management group that joined STS Holdings in 2008, will retain its current name.
Anson went on to state, “Our mission is to continue providing alternative, integrated, turnkey solutions to the aerospace industry, not only through our existing network of companies, but through further expansion in those areas where we indentify need. What started as a very small company, has over the past two decades become one of the industry’s leading providers of aerospace services and we envision this as another step in our ongoing growth.”
