STS Component Solutions acquires aircraft interiors specialists, UJet Group

STS Component Solutions grows its aviation aftermarket portfolio by Edit date and timestrategically acquiring UJet Group, an aircraft interior modification and refurbishment company based out of Shannon, Ireland. Through this acquisition, STS Component Solutions will now offer aircraft interior refurbishment and parts services under the newly formed brand, STS UJet.

STS UJet will continue to operate out of Shannon, Ireland and is expected to remain the region’s premier FAA/EASA 145 approved aircraft interior repair shop. STS UJet’s current offerings include complete aircraft interior refurbishment and modification, cabin reconfiguration, seats and support services.

“This acquisition further aligns STS with the growing demand of the marketplace,” says Tom Covella, Group President of STS Component Solutions. “Aircraft interior modification and refurbishment is a service offering that will further differentiate STS in the marketplace and provide our global customers with another value-added service. Additionally, with this FAA/EASA 145 approval, we see a great opportunity in Shannon, Ireland to further expand the global footprint of STS.”

Mark Robertson, President of STS UJet states, “All of us at UJet are excited about our partnership with STS Aviation Group, which is a strong strategic fit, leveraging our two leading companies’ respective strengths, across many areas, providing solutions for the airline industry. Today’s announcement is another solid step in both our journeys, to build on our foundations and continue to broaden our service offerings all over the world to both our existing customer base and beyond. It’s a win-win for all of our employees and the local community in Shannon and surrounding areas, as we now can accelerate the growth of our capabilities, facilities, and employees.”

STS UJet is currently up, running and fully operational. And given the support now offered by its new parent company, STS Component Solutions, STS UJet is primed and poised to expand its aircraft interior modification and refurbishment services to a global customer base.
