Gloucestershire’s Air Salvage International is celebrating its 25th anniversary.
Formed in 1997 and based at Cotswold Airport, Gloucestershire, ASI have made a name for themselves as one of the world’s largest privately owned disassembly and recovery companies and were the first in Europe to offer this service.
The business that ASI launched back in 1997 enabled owners of retired commercial aircraft to make a positive step forward in responding to pressure to reduce their global footprint.
CEO Mark Gregory and his team have worked on over 900 disassembly and recovery projects over the last 25 years, including some in remote locations such as Togo, Sudan, Ecuador, Libya, and Costa Rica, and have built up a valued global customer base including banks, lessors, insurers, component providers, airlines, and UK Government Agencies.
Other highlights include ASI winning the British airways contract to dismantle and then reassemble two Concorde aircraft at their destination UK museums.
“It is difficult to pat yourself on the back, but I have certainly fulfilled my dream of forming a successful and sustainable aviation business.
“I also believe that we have been and are currently part of a driving force behind delivering sustainable and environmentally responsible services in the global aircraft disassembly sector which makes me very proud,” said Mark.
