Argo MRT acquires borescope specialist FAO Services
As part of Argo MRT’s continuing success and expansion, we are pleased to announce the recent acquisition of aircraft engine borescope specialist FAO Services. The new operation will expand Argo MRT’s capabilities to satisfy a much broader range of customer requirements.
Jeremy Bateson, Head of Engineering at Argo MRT comments “The acquisition of FAO Services is an exciting moment for Argo MRT and our customers. Argo MRT will now be able to provide specialist aircraft borescope inspection solutions, expanding Argo MRT’s portfolio to include EASA part 145 approval B1 and B3 categories.”
Borescope inspection is an important practice on any powerplant; routine inspection and maintenance can help prolong the life of the engine and ultimately help prevent failure saving customers time and resource. The new service is set to be well received by those customers involved with asset sales and acquisitions, pre-lease inspections, end-of-lease returns, scheduled inspections and worldwide AOG callouts.
The new operation builds on Argo MRT’s existing composite and metallic structural repair services, supporting clients with reliable AOG, modification and inspection services. Argo MRT is known in the airline industry for its flexible and skilled team of professionals, bringing decades of experience from a broad base of aerospace backgrounds. A team of specialists with the right prerequisites, Argo MRT provides flexible and professional solutions tailored to the individual needs of the customer. Argo MRT is available for both ad-hoc and long-term projects on behalf of operators, OEMs, MROs, part 145 and part 21 organisations.
