Storm Aviation Limited (SAL) has acquired Manchester-based Chevron Technical Services Ltd (CTS), and its Prestwick-based subsidiary Chevron Aircraft Maintenance Ltd (CAM) providing aerospace solutions to the aircraft maintenance industry. SAL, a subsidiary of FL Technics, which is part of Avia Solutions Group (ASG), will create a significant presence in Scotland’s Glasgow Prestwick Airport while adding new capabilities, including wide-body aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), aircraft component maintenance, EASA Part-21G workshop production, engine services, fuel tank repairs, and recruitment services. Additionally, Storm Aviation Limited will assume operation of 2 line maintenance stations – at Glasgow Prestwick Airport and, through a joint venture, at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

Together with FL Technics, Storm Aviation Limited already has access to 68,000 square metres of bay hangar space at 5 locations in Europe, China, and Southeast Asia and offers airline clients access to one of the largest independent line maintenance networks covering more than 70 airport locations worldwide.

The acquisition of Chevron Technical Services’ Glasgow Prestwick Airport-based facility will add a 6th location with 6,000 square metres of hangar space and three aircraft bays with the capacity to house wide-bodied aircraft up to Boeing 747. CTS’s aircraft component maintenance and production workshops along with aviation recruitment services are based in Manchester and will be offered as new services to SAL’s existing clients.

Storm Aviation Limited, which is headquartered at Diamond Hangar in London Stansted Airport, boasts a 25-year history marked by a track record of successful projects delivered to tier-one customers, including Lufthansa, Emirates, Swiss International Airlines, Rolls Royce, and EasyJet. The onboarding of Chevron Technical Services will enrich SAL’s profile with over four decades of valuable experience as a major provider in the UK aerospace manufacturing and MRO sectors, offering approved EASA Part-145 maintenance and other high-quality aviation services. Glasgow Prestwick Airport has the potential to become a core hub for training as well as aircraft line and base maintenance for FL Technics Group clients worldwide.  

Neil Morris, a representative of Chevron Technical Services’ founder family and Company CEO said: “After over 40 years of commitment to our customers it is our pleasure to see Chevron Technical Services joining forces with Storm Aviation Limited and the ever-expanding aviation family of Avia Solutions Group companies. By becoming an integral part of SAL, we hope to further strengthen our globally established reputation for the quality of service and customer care.”

Thomas Buckley, CEO of Storm Aviation Services, comments: “We are very pleased to announce our acquisition of the highly respected Chevron Technical Services group of companies. This is an incredible milestone for Storm Aviation Limited and a testament to the outstanding team of people who make us what we are. The Acquisition both enhances and complements the suite of services already offered by SAL. I look forward to working with the CTS and CAM teams alongside Ayrshire Council and Scottish Enterprise who have supported the business throughout the years. Together we will drive further growth and create new opportunities for our people, customers and stakeholders.” 

Storm Aviation Limited’s acquisition of Chevron Technical Services is the most recent development in Avia Solutions Group’s wider expansion programme focussed on growing the Company’s footprint in the global aircraft MRO space. Over the last 18 months, ASG subsidiaries announced a number of significant investments. In February 2020, FL Technics acquired the Italian MRO provider Flash Line Maintenance, and in December 2020, the Canadian line maintenance operator Wright international.  Also in December 2020, Storm Aviation Limited announced the acquisition of the UK line maintenance network from SR Technics. In March 2021, ASG subsidiary Jet MS completed the acquisition of RAS Completions, the corporate aircraft interior and exterior specialist based at London Biggin Hill Airport.
