Palm City, Jan. 08, 2015 – STS Component Solutions, a division of STS Aviation Group, is pleased to announce that it has acquired the assets and business relationships of Air-Pro Hose, formally of Aero Maintenence Group, which is an Air France/KLM company company located in Medley, Florida. The newly acquired business is legally named STS Distribution Solutions Inc. and will be operating as STS Air-Pro.
STS Component Solutions prides itself as being a “market pioneer” in the aviation industry. Our track record and success has been driven by a pursuit to establish value-driven solutions to our customers and business partners. It is also a key driver in our business strategy to always be new looking at the newest generation platforms and tailoring our services to support these platforms.
We are proud to announce that in 2014 we have launched our support and services into the B787 marketplace and have established a Global AOG support and warranty administration agreement with one of our OEM business partners, Esterline Korry.
As we close out the second quarter of 2014 with another strong month, I find myself looking back at what we have accomplished and question… “What’s next? Where do we go from here?”
We consider ourselves very fortunate to have developed such great working relationships with our customers and OEM business partners. Without these relationships, our company would never have been able to accomplish what it has, nor would it be able to look toward the future with such promise and excitement.
AviTrader MRO: What attracted you to this business?
Covella: For me, I wanted to do something different. Something that you can deliver value and make a difference. The aviation aftermarket business is a very dynamic and fast paced business. Every day represents new opportunities and challenges. But the most fascinating part of the business is the relationships that can be established in all of the global markets. I have been very fortunate to be able to forge great relationships in many global markets and that coupled with the items mentioned above is what makes this business what it is.
The immense complexity of engine and aircraft component services at STS Component Solutions comprises background processes for sourcing, teardown, disposition, cost, logistics, sales, support and detailed regulatory data management for global engine and airframe parts distribution services. To further streamline operations, STS wanted to move from using disparate systems for accounting and ERP and into a modern solution that would integrate business processes across their division to become more efficient and responsive to their customer needs.
