Salus Aviation: From Challenge Comes Growth
YOU WOULD be forgiven for not knowing the name Salus Aviation, or exactly what the New Zealand-owned and operated group actually ‘does’. Oceania Aviation, on the other hand, is a well-known aircraft sales, MRO and parts support provider based in New Zealand but with a significant Australian customer base. The Salus group acquired Oceania in 2017, following this with the acquisition of Nevada-based HPN in 2019, another MRO known for its unparalleled aftermarket parts support and inventory. The addition of both MRO businesses preceded a period of significant change and disruption for the group (compounded by COVID), but have also presented significant growth opportunities in Australasia and beyond.
Despite a very challenging market with regards to supply chain issues, OEM support and reduced operator activity, the CEO of the Salus group remains full of confidence for the future. With a host of strategic initiatives now in place including changes to the company’s senior management, added engineering resource and a recently finalised five year growth plan for the group, GEO Greg Edmonds says that “we are currently poised to take advantage of significant opportunities which will deliver sustainable growth by 2025. These will extend our reach into new markets and allow for new capabilities not previously considered pre-COVID”.
