STS Aviation Services, a division of STS Aviation Group and a global provider of aircraft MRO solutions, has acquired UK-based engine MRO, GT Engine Services (GTES).

Since establishing itself in the UK at the end of 2019, STS Aviation Services has delivered sustained year-on-year growth, continued to add both capacity and capability, and is now the largest independent MRO in the United Kingdom with an expanding footprint in Europe, serving both commercial and military sectors. Acquiring GT Engine Services builds on the strategy for a single point solution and accelerates STS’ growth into the engine sector, opening further capability to its growing customer base.

“Myself and the Board at STS are delighted we have been able to conclude the acquisition of GT Engine Services, which delivers on our strategy of being a significant provider of airframe, material, and now engine maintenance and repair solutions,” said STS Aviation Group’s CEO, PJ Anson. “This further demonstrates the commitment we have to the UK and European markets.”

Previous owner and CEO, Greg Macleod, will continue to lead the team at GT Engine Services as Managing Director, Engineering Services, and will report directly to Ian Bartholomew, Executive Vice President & Managing Director STS Aviation Services Europe.

“With hard work and commitment, we have established STS as a key player in the MRO sector in the UK and Europe,” said Bartholomew. “With a significant presence in the UK and operations at key locations, we have built an enviable portfolio of highly credible customers, many of whom we share with GT Engine Services. With our success, we have created hundreds of new jobs in the UK, with plans to add a significant number of new roles this year. With the addition of GT Engine Services, we will unlock new and exciting opportunities.”
