JMC Group & Exeter Aerospace Announce Exclusive Supplier Agreement
Trusted provider of aviation manpower and engineering services, JMC Group, is proud to announce the signing of a long-term exclusive agreement with leading MRO, Exeter Aerospace.
The agreement will support Exeter Aerospace bolster its contract and permanent workforce, helping to ensure they keep up with rising demand for their maintenance services. JMC experts bring significant experience in the management of recruitment processes for both contract and permanent clients; these processes incorporate the management of risk in relation to legislative changes through considered investment, including IR35.
JMC is managed by highly experienced professionals from the civil and military aviation and manpower industries. Every week, JMC supplies personnel to airline, MRO and component manufacturing clients across the world. Their unrivalled expertise and industry experience make them an ideal partner for Exeter Aerospace, with the business expanding its base maintenance operations and servicing ATR, De Havilland DHC 8, and Embraer ERJ 170 & 190.
Exeter Aerospace, sister company of Dublin Aerospace, a leading MRO based in Ireland and part of the Dublin Aerospace Group, established its operations at Exeter Airport last September. Exeter Aerospace immediately looked to hire aircraft mechanics, engineers and aviation professionals at their new facility, with this number to grow in line with the business as airlines and aircraft return to the skies over the coming months and years. The availability of the hangars and workshops combined with a phenomenal pool of local aviation and engineering talent, made this a hugely attractive location for Exeter Aerospace.
Exeter Aerospace’s Employment Model is unique and includes flexible ‘annualised hours’ working to match the high degree of seasonality in aircraft overhaul. The maintenance specialists are also applying their unique Profit Sharing approach for their team which pays out a percentage of profits to team members every quarter enabling all the team to benefit from their hard work and flexibility.
Hollie Prendergast, Managing Director of JMC Group, commented: “This is a very exciting partnership, and another fantastic achievement for JMC, ever reinforcing our team’s technical expertise, dedication and flexibility to support our high-profile clients.
We’re thrilled to be working closely with such a forward-thinking MRO. We’re confident our candidates will provide Exeter Aerospace with more than just manpower, but additional skills, knowledge and experience that will help to deliver the highest standard of service to their expanding client base.”
Commenting on the exclusive agreement, Will Campbell, General Manager of Exeter Aerospace Group said: “We’re delighted to be working alongside JMC who will support us moving forward with our ambitious growth plans. In time, we plan to have up to six aircraft overhaul bays in addition to a range of support shops and test facilities. And over the next three-four years, our overall aim is to have over 250 aviation professionals working at Exeter Aerospace with an apprenticeship scheme planned to start in September 2022.”
