TES Aviation Group, the leading aircraft engine asset management service provider, is expanding globally with the opening of a new facility in Singapore, its first outside the UK.
The state of the art facility offers TES the ability to provide a range of platform solutions to its Asia Pacific partners underpinned by the organisational excellence that is the corner stone of the TES business. Based close to Changi Airport the 9,000sqft facility provides warehousing, logistics, parts and engine storage as well as engineering fleet management services to the growing TES customer base in the region. Additional services will be added over time to supplement the Asia Pacific offering.
Ashley Cooper, CEO of TES said;
“TES is delighted to be adding Singapore to its global franchise. This new facility will allow us to more efficiently support our expanding Asia Pacific client base across the complete platform of TES services.”
TES has been successfully supporting its Asia Pacific client base for over ten years utilising resources from its UK HQ and by deploying seconded personnel into selected client locations in the region. With a total of twelve employees, including experienced Engineers, Warehousing/Logistics Personnel and a Materials Sales team, the new Singapore facility is an important milestone in the company’s ongoing growth plans.
In line with the expansion of the franchise, TES is now able to offer a wider, more integrated platform solution to its client base, bringing together engineering expertise, with long term client program management, maintenance, repair and overhaul management, overhauled condition piece parts supply and short term lease engine provision. In addition TES has widened its product reach, expanding significantly in CF6-80C2, PW4000, CFM56 Series, V2500 Series and RB211-535E4 engine types.
In establishing its new facility, TES is making a multi-million dollar investment in Singapore. This investment is not only creating employment for Singaporeans but brings to Singapore unique skills that, until now, have not been available to the many start-ups, operators, leasing companies and investors in the region who form the TES customer base. These skills include engine technical inspection and commercial management, engine fleet management, engine disassembly and piece part repair management and materials sales and distribution.
Sia Kheng Yok, Director of Transport Engineering, Singapore Economic Development Board, said;
“We warmly congratulate TES Aviation Group on the opening of its first facility outside of the UK, here in Singapore. This decision affirms the important role Singapore plays for companies looking to tap into the growing Asian markets. The company’s total engine support services address an emerging trend in the aerospace sector and will be an excellent complement to our MRO cluster. This development will further reinforce Singapore’s position as a global aerospace hub.”
