Official Opening of the new Inter-Tec office
that we are comfortably moved into the new office, it is only right
that we celebrate the move with our staff, colleagues and clients. We
will be having an official opening ceremony of the office on Thursday
13th June 2013. Alan Fraser, Managing Director of BAE Systems Regional
Aircraft, has kindly agreed to perform the opening for us. We are
looking forward to the event, an opportunity for our staff, customers
and some local politicians to mix, and a chance to generally catch up
with everyone in a convivial setting.
Adding even more expertise to the team
our design organisation approval now well established, and our
extensive engineering capabilities, we have seen very encouraging levels
of growth over the last year. This has raised the challenge of
increasing our number of staff. We are aware that we need to do this in
stages, not only recruiting high calibre engineers but also growing at a
sustainable level for the business.
the last couple of months we have been fortunate enough to recruit two
highly experienced engineers to add to our design and stress teams.
They bring with them a wealth of experience, skills and knowledge
reinforcing the engineering team. Having experienced engineers not only
helps motivate and bring on our younger staff but also provides a strong
platform for our graduate recruitment plans through the summer.
Increasing exposure in the UAE
you will know, one of our target international markets is the Middle
East and we have been putting much effort making contacts and visiting
the area over the last few months. This effort has resulted in design
and certification work which allows us to further showcase our
capabilities and working methods to potential customers in the region.
on from this, Fred Gorrie made a trip to UAE at the end of May which
proved to be a tremendous success in terms of meeting many new companies
and key people. We now have an extensive list of prospective projects
which we are developing, many of them in partnership with Aeropair in
Dubai. With invitations to bid, we have already submitted proposals for a
couple of projects. We are highly encouraged by progress made to date
in the UAE and by the potential opportunities that exist for us in the
Events in the past months
- Aircraft Interiors Expo 2013
attended Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg in April. It’s encouraging
to see the event grow year on year. Due to the focused nature of
Aircraft Interiors Expo, it is a great opportunity to meet up with old
contacts and also track all developments underway in aircraft interiors,
especially the huge range of seating options coming to market. This
event, as always, brings us many new contacts and more so this year with
our EASA Design Organisation Approval in hand.
used the AeroXchange in Singapore in February to continue our awareness
campaign in SE Asia and to pick-up on existing dialogue with a number
of companies. It was interesting to speak to these companies and
also have one-to-one off-site meetings. We believe we have a lot we can
offer to this market and we are working on a number of proposals in the
region and hope to take some across the line in coming months. We have
also established a co-operation with academic institutions in Singapore.
- Aircraft Purchasing & Maintenance (AP&M) 2013
attended AP&M which focuses on the MRO and Aftermarket sectors for
the last 4 years, this was the first time we had exhibited at the event
at Earls Court, London. We felt this event was a good showcase for our
capability and service offering especially with our EASA Design
Organisation Approval. It was a busy show and proved a great opportunity
to introduce one of our high-potential younger engineers to the
external facing marketing side of the business.
As always, we will be sure you keep you updated on all our trips and look forward to meeting you in 2013!
