Marshall lands Thai contract worth 2.2m


29-05-2002

Marshall Aerospace is carrying out vital aircraft maintenance for the Royal Thai Air Force in a contract worth 2.

2 million.



Engineers from Marshall Aerospace International Services (MAIS) have been working alongside Thai counterparts to undertake routine maintenance.



The project includes stripping aircraft, removing, overhauling and replacing parts and equipment, as well as detailed inspection and testing. It is designed to extend the life of the aircraft and improve safety.



The deal was backed by insurance from the Government's Export Credits Guarantee Department (ECGD), which helps companies undertake business in emerging markets overseas.



Describing the work completed to date, MAIS director Colin Way said: 'The project has been a complete success and involved a lot of work and close co-operation with the Royal Thai Air Force. The support provided by ECGD was crucial to alleviate the risk of working in an unfamiliar market.'

 

Founded in 1909, the Marshall Group has a turnover of £2.5bn and over 5,700 employees. Headquartered on a 900-acre site in Cambridge, Marshall has three principal arms to the business: Aerospace and Defence; Property; and Ventures.
