We had committed to the necessary investment in modifications and upgrades and have used this quieter period to carry these out,” comments Glenford Marston, CEO of Aero Norway. “At Aero Norway we are constantly reassessing, re-evaluating and looking for ways to improve our processes in pursuit of reduced turn-around times. In addition to the major investments we have made over the last year in our high speed grinder, plasma machine and static balancing machine, we have also carried out numerous small projects around the shop to benefit our customers and this time has given us the opportunity to complete these.”
