STS Line Maintenance Recognized by the USDOT and FAA for Its Commitment to Training and Safety

Jensen Beach, Fla., February 27, 2019 – STS Line Maintenance just received the FAA Diamond Award by the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration. The award recognizes the company’s commitment to aircraft maintenance training and safety.

“Given the growing size of our Line Maintenance network, this is quite an accomplishment,” says Mark Smith, Group President of STS Line Maintenance. “The promotion of safety through regular and ongoing training has always been a focal point for STS Line Maintenance, but to receive the FAA Diamond Award means 100% participation from our entire staff… and that’s hundreds of people rallying around the company’s core cultural values and training methods. Again, quite an accomplishment.”

Back in the early part of 2018, STS Line Maintenance enrolled itself into the FAA FAAST program; a program designed to promote safer skies through the ongoing training and education of Aircraft Maintenance Technicians. In order to receive the FAA Diamond Award, every touch labor specialist employed by STS Line Maintenance had to successfully complete the year-long program with ratings levels that exceeded the Federal Aviation Administration’s justifiably high standards.

“We fix, troubleshoot and modify commercial aircraft for a living,” says Robby Bush, Sr. Vice President and General Manager for STS Line Maintenance. “That’s a responsibility and a privilege we take very seriously. This award reflects that, and I’m proud of our team for rallying together and working hard to bring this honor home. This award means a lot to us as an organization but knowing that safety rests at the heart of everything we do means a great deal more to our customers and the people who travel on their aircraft.

Sachi Greene Named by Staffing Industry Analysts as One of the Top 100 Women in Staffing

There are leaders who lead for the mere sake of title, and there are those who inspire because doing so is simply a part of who they are. Sachi Greene, Sr. Vice President of Recruiting and Operations for STS Technical Services, is a leader who inspires by example. This fact has never been more evident than it is today as Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the world’s premium “global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions,” honors Greene by naming her as one of the Top 100 women in staffing in America as well as one of the top 150 women in staffing globally.

“This is really an unexpected honor,” says Greene. “I am proud of this accomplishment. It is definitely a nice highlight for me in my career, but this honor isn’t mine alone. There is an entire team of people that I work in the trenches with each and every day, and they deserve this recognition and accomplishment just as much.”

Ever humble but always looking forward, Greene is excited about what she and her team are building.

“You know, it wasn’t that long ago that I was overseeing a workforce management group dedicated solely to servicing the aerospace industry. Flash forward to present times, and we have grown so much as a company. For example, our team has expanded into multiple industries beyond aviation, and I’m really excited about the future. The people we have in place, the technology we utilize and the resources at our disposal are all starting to align, and that has me excited about what’s to come.”
