AJW Technique, the maintenance hub for the AJW Group's component repair and overhaul service, marks five years of success this month.

The Montreal-based business was established in 2012 and has developed into a world class, 160,000 sq. ft. facility with a wide range of latest generation test equipment, including one of the most comprehensive avionics test and repair suites in the world.

In just five years, AJW Technique has grown into a business which supports over 500 airline customers across 100 countries.

Having employed just seven people in 2012, it employs around 200 today, many of whom are skilled, licensed engineers and technicians, as well as supporting many other jobs at partners and suppliers in the Montreal region and beyond.

AJW Technique today handles around 20,000 individual MRO events a year across nearly 5,600 part numbers, from both commercial and business aircraft.

AJW Group recently announced the promotion of Gavin Simmonds, General Manager of AJW Technique, to also be its Chief Operations Officer.

Christopher Whiteside, President and CEO of AJW Group, said: “We are very proud of what AJW Technique has accomplished over the last five years and are excited about its future. The extensive experience and strong team culture has been vital to our success for our customers and it continues to grow.”

Gavin Simmonds, Chief Operations Officer of AJW Group, said: “In just five years, AJW Technique has become a major part of the Montreal aerospace community, meeting the needs of ever-increasing numbers of airlines across the globe. Our success and continued growth is largely down to the amazing team and culture we have built upon from day one at technique.”

“We are proud to have nurtured and developed the talents of our growing number of employees, helping to reinforce Montreal’s reputation as a centre of aerospace excellence.”
