ST Engineering’s Commercial Aerospace business and Quickstep Holdings (Quickstep) have entered into a partnership to bring together their complementary capabilities to service the region out of facilities in Australia.

Under the partnership, ST Engineering and Quickstep will establish a regional nacelle pool in Australia that can service a wide range of Airbus and Boeing aircraft platforms. Quickstep will conduct the day-to-day operations for the services at its aerospace manufacturing and MRO facilities in Australia, which include a 16,000 m² composite manufacturing plant at Bankstown Airport in Sydney and an MRO facility at Melbourne Airport. ST Engineering will leverage its MRO capabilities in nacelles and aero structures to provide the necessary engineering support and help Quickstep enhance its operational delivery, quality and nacelle capabilities especially for new-generation aircraft to better meet customers’ needs.

By pooling the resources and expertise of ST Engineering and Quickstep in Australia, the partnership will benefit airline operators which can look forward to shorter lead times and savings in overall logistics cost during servicing.”

Mark Burgess, Quickstep Managing Director and CEO said, “ST Engineering is one of the world’s most well-regarded aerospace businesses, Quickstep has a unique and growing capability footprint in Australia, the partnership between these two companies will offer regional airlines a range of services they have not benefitted from before.

We are delighted to announce this partnership and look forward to a strong growth outlook for both companies in the Australasia market.”
