Constructed to improve safety and enable engineers to work faster and more efficiently, TBD’s focus on high-quality materials, streamlined design and UK manufacturing facility made them the preferred supplier for the project.

Engineering Director for Storm Aviation, Russell Horton, was keen to provide his teams around the country with a robust and reliable work platform that would enable them to deliver the excellent standard of tailored line maintenance services that the Company has fostered across Europe and around the world. “We work with the majority of commercial and freight aircraft types and provide a tailored range of services including line maintenance, training (both mandatory EASA Part-145 and EASA Part-147) and AOG support” he said.  “Currently, we supply a service to more than 40 airlines, including Lufthansa, Emirates, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and easyJet.

"Importantly, we also hold a UK-issued EASA Part-147 type training approval which enables us to provide a high standard of training for our own engineers, other MROs and customer airlines around the world. Choosing the right equipment from TBD to upgrade our facilities at Gatwick, Newcastle, Belfast, Manchester, Luton, East Midlands, Cardiff, Norwich and Stansted has been of paramount importance.”

The total order, worth over £190k, was focused on 18 engineering platforms with general purpose steps and electronics bay access steps forming an integral part of the equipment.

“We build line maintenance equipment that is robust and fully functional in the hands of many users, has inherent safety features engineered into the design, and remains cost effective to maintain” adds Jonathan Attfield, Sales Director of TBD. “Our recent investment in innovation, people, plant and equipment at our specialist facility in South Wales means that TBD is well-placed to meet increased demand. We have achieved 30%+ growth in sales in the last 12 months and customers worldwide, like Storm Aviation, are coming to TBD because they know they can get the durability and quality they seek.”
