Leading the world in ground support technology and service
SG Equipment was established in 1988 to provide a world-class aircraft ground support technology service to all major military and civil aircraft manufacturers, OEMs and operators – CE marked and guaranteed to aircraft flying part standard - wherever it may be required.
Following a period of sustained growth and expansion throughout which our reputation for technical innovation, engineering excellence, uncompromising service, total reliability and exceptional value was confirmed, in 2002 we moved into our present 25,000 sq ft purpose-designed and built complex. This modern manufacturing and administration facility are conveniently located on the eastern outskirts of Manchester, within minutes of the M60 motorway providing rapid access to the entire UK motorway network.
Our modern premises include 18,000 sq ft of manufacturing space that is supported by dedicated electrical and electronics assembly, hydraulic clean, pressure testing, vacuum leak detection, ultrasonic cleaning, a customised commercial sewing department … and of course computer-controlled materials, parts and stock operation.
Also on site are our industry-leading design, development and project management operations, together with a fully accredited quality-testing suite alongside our administration facilities. Add to this our impressive portfolio of worldwide approvals and it becomes clearly evident just why SG Equipment is now globally recognised as the industry leader for aerospace and avionics ground support technology and service. A service that covers the most advanced innovative and diverse bespoke designs as well as an exclusive ‘obsolescence management’ capability that enables us to repair, update and upgrade existing equipment in order to ensure it conforms to all the latest legislation, regulatory and technical requirements.
With a fully trusted ‘non-disclosure’ policy, customers both large and small enjoy absolute confidence that every design, every component, every system that we produce maintains guaranteed exclusivity and will never be offered to any competitor.
Although we are a UK based organisation our marketplace has an undisputed global reach. We can also provide an exclusive ‘remote diagnostics’ facility through which we are able to liaise directly and in real time with a customer’s own service personnel, anywhere in the world, to analyse, diagnose and assist on-the-ground engineers resolve the most technical challenges.
Undoubtedly we owe much of our success to our unrivalled facilities and state-of-the-art technology, but perhaps even more important are the skills, experience and the loyalty of our exceptional workforce. Most of our staff have been with us for many years. Many have gained university degrees in their specialist subjects. Others have qualified at leading colleges. While all of them have enjoyed the kind of benefits that can only be achieved with the kind of on-the-job experience that comes by working and learning alongside the most highly respected specialists in the ground support technology sector.
