STS Aviation Group has announced the strategic relocation of its Part 145 aircraft seat component/seat repair operations from Shannon, Ireland, to its expanded facility in Manchester, UK. This move is part of the company’s ongoing effort to enhance turnkey services for its global customer base. The transition of the Part 145 component/seat repair capabilities is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2024.
“The relocation to Manchester represents a strategic expansion of our service capabilities in a key location,” said Ian Bartholomew, EVP & managing director of European operations at STS Aviation Services. “This move enables us to consolidate our operations, providing more efficient and comprehensive services to our clients.”
While the component/seat repair operations are moving to Manchester, the Shannon facility will continue to operate as an EASA/FAA Part 145 certified repair shop. Additionally, it will offer passenger seat storage services at the company’s New Market Fergus warehouse, ensuring continued support for clients reliant on those services.
