Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group is celebrating the tenth anniversary of the opening of its first office in Canada; in Abbotsford, British Columbia. The company’s presence in Canada is supporting the country’s growing aerospace industry, and in 2014, Marshall purchased a 4,343ft2 building, also in Abbotsford, to accommodate up to 35 personnel; the majority of which are engineers and technical staff. The Abbotsford office has subsequently become Marshall’s HQ in Canada.

Steve Fitz-Gerald, CEO of Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, comments: “The provision of in-country support is very much a Marshall strength, and we have a proven track record of collaborating with military and commercial organisations to deliver quantifiable end-user benefits.”

Marshall holds extensive airworthiness accreditations, granted by a variety of military and commercial regulatory authorities, aerospace companies and defence organisations, including Canada’s Department of National Defence (DND).

As well as providing local technical and engineering support, the two offices in Canada have access to the extensive skills and resources in Cambridge, United Kingdom, where Marshall employs more than 2,000 highly trained personnel on its 800 acre site; which includes 1.2 million ft2 of hangar space plus the company-owned Cambridge Airport.

Of particular relevance to Marshall’s presence in Canada is the company’s extensive experience with the Hercules C-130 platform. To date, the company has worked on more than 300 C-130s, for 52 customers in 33 countries.

Fitz-Gerald concludes: “This year also marks our 50th anniversary of supporting the UK’s Royal Air Force’s C-130 fleet with the provision of engineering services and capabilities that we’re now exporting, and which have been recognised by our receipt of a 2016 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.”
