APOC Aviation is collaborating with Willis Aviation Services Limited (WASL), a wholly owned subsidiary of Willis Lease Finance (Willis Lease) in APOC’s first part-out project to take place at its Teesside Airport facility in the UK. The B737-800 airframe was acquired by APOC through leading Dutch asset investment manager, Arena Aviation Capital. APOC has signed a framework agreement for this and future teardowns at Teesside Airport with the experienced end-of-life solutions provider, WASL.
Jasper van den Boogaard, VP Airframe Acquisition & Trading at APOC, explains that active project management and close cooperation is key for the successful completion of a project of this type. “We highly value the services provided by WASL and its specialist part-out team. The project has run very smoothly from the start, and we are working closely with the team onsite. Our full involvement at all times means that our customers can benefit from acquiring parts directly from the project.”
