HOUSTON, April 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- InTech Aerospace LLC, a steadily growing aviation technical services firm specialized in commercial and government airplane interiors and components, has promoted Mr. Scott Mowery to Chief Operating Officer. Scott previously held the position of Vice President-Operations for InTech Aerospace and now in the expanded role as C.O.O. Mr. Mowery will oversee all technical and business operations of InTech and will be the Responsible Officer for the company's performance for its customers and FAA compliance.
Based in Houston TX, InTech Aerospace is poised for continued growth as commercial airlines fleets keep expanding. InTech performs a variety of overhaul, repair, and retrofit chores chiefly on aircraft interiors and related components on fixed-wing aircraft. InTech Aerospace today enjoys a client list that includes regional airlines, mainline carriers, large OEM's, aircraft leasing companies, government aircraft, and major MRO facilities.
Scott Mowery originally joined InTech as Senior Director of Operations & Quality, with a subsequent promotion to VP-Operations. He has 29 years' total aircraft maintenance experience, including 6 years in aviation maintenance with the US Air Force. He previously was a General Manager and the Maintenance Production Control Manager for the fleet support division of a major airline. Mr. Mowery is a well-recognized expert in aircraft interiors and numerous other aviation overhaul & repair disciplines, and practices a quality-centered approach with LEAN principles. In addition to extensive USAF training, Scott is also an FAA-licensed Airframe & Powerplant Repairman, and holds the FAA's Inspection Authorization distinction.
InTech's served markets show strong underpinnings for long-term growth. InTech Aerospace finds itself in a period of unprecedented expansion in commercial aerospace. The airlines' fleets of large and regional sized planes are expected to double in their numbers in the next 20 years (forecasts by Boeing, Airbus, and FAA), and interiors tend to wear out with heavy use, requiring periodic overhaul and upgrade. Published reports recently cited over $5 Trillion in new orders for commercial planes through the year 2037, and all of those planes (which will fly for 30 years or more) represent an "Installed Base" of many millions of man-hours of required repairs and refurbishments. That aftermarket cycle of recurring repairs is where InTech Aerospace predicts its steadiest growth in the next 5 to 10 years.
Known as the "interior experts," InTech Aerospace has teams of highly experienced craftspeople and FAA-licensed aircraft technicians that repair and overhaul virtually everything inside the cabin of an aircraft, including seats, galleys, lavatories, floor panels, sidewalls, overheads, and everything in between.
Steve Townes, CEO of InTech's parent company, said: "Scott Mowery is a well-qualified Officer level leader who has steadily advanced inside InTech Aerospace, leading the team with great performance for our airline and MRO customers. His long technical career in aircraft MRO has been enhanced in recent years through higher levels of business responsibility."
InTech Aerospace is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ranger AeroSystems in Greenville SC, an aviation growth platform created by Ranger Aerospace. Plans are to enhance and expand InTech Aerospace through internal investments and organic growth, entering new lines of technical capacity, expanding geographically, facilities enhancements, and possibly acquiring complementary companies.
