While Aviation Technical Services (ATS) is most widely known for its MRO and engineering services, the company also has a fast-growing component repair business with four operating sites across North America. Aviation Week had the opportunity to tour the company’s component repair facility in Everett, WA with Mark Saretsky, director, components support, to learn more about the facility’s capabilities and growth.
According to ATS President Brian Hirshman, the company expects its components business to drive mosts of its growth in 2018 and beyond. "We’ll do this the old-fashioned way: delighting our customers with better quality, faster turnaround times, and at a fair price. We are adding new capabilities deliberately, both organically and through acquisitions," says Hirshman.
