Airline Component Services Ltd AIRLINE COMPONENT SERVICES (ACS) and its subsidiary, ACS Aviation Industries, are extremely proud to have been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.

Founded in 2005, with the aim of adding technical expertise to the supply of difficult-to-source structural components for commercial aircraft, this award for international trade is in recognition of Airline Component Services’ outstanding continuous growth in overseas sales over the past six years, which has seen a rise of over 600%.

As a globally respected supplier of aircraft components, ACS specialises in the supply of aircraft flying controls and structural components, leaning heavily on the unique aviation experience of its executive team.

Added to the organisation in 2013, ACS Aviation Industries is an EASA 145, FAR 145, TCCA-approved repair station specialising in the maintenance, repair and overhaul of all Boeing and Airbus structural components.

With overseas sales rising from 15% to 27% of turnover, the company has targeted further growth in the European market to consolidate its success to date.

Graham Higgins, company founder, said: “Our business is extremely proud to have received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise. It is fantastic to have all the hard work, talent and technical experience of the entire team recognised at such a high level. Quite simply, this award would not have been possible without their endeavours. Our commitment to providing and delivering these difficult-to-source components to our customers has been the foundation of this growth.

“This award comes at an exciting time for our company as we prepare to move into our new facility in Braintree. This will enable us to double our capacity for component repair as well as improve our response and delivery times. With customers such as British Airways and Lufthansa trusting us with their components, we are well placed to continue our success story.”
