Rotable Repairs Completes Relocation of New Wheel and Brake Facility

Rotable Repairs has completed its move to a new 49,000 sq. ft Wheel and Brake facility in Essex, United Kingdom.

With the CAA’s oversight, the phased transition went without a hitch or without impacting production. The company is now set to take triple it’s capacity, strategically planned the wheel and brake facility now houses a flowed and intuitive production line, new spring testers, wheel greasers, nitrogen system, inflation cages, automatic wheel inflation and new spray shop/oven eight times the size of their original. This equipment complements the companies existing build up rigs and torque loader which all adds to the workshop’s ability to process volume.

The company touts a healthy worldwide customer base, the support of the wheel and brake manufacturers and substantial investment in material by Desser for pooling and consignments.

With Watts Aviation having an additional 40,000 sq. ft. of tire storage and with both companies supporting all platforms from general aviation, corporate and commercial Rotable Repairs can claim to be a true aviation wheel and brake specialist based on diversity and scope. Training and Technology have also seen investment as the management team feel it’s important that an influx of new staff should see benefit from training and from our experience gained over time.

“Finally having all of our workshop departments under one roof has allowed us to re-focus our staff and make a concentrated effort to fully utilize the range of improvements we’ve invested in over the last 12 months,” Richard Gardiner, managing director of Rotable Repairs says. “This has been a momentous effort by our management, staff and contractors and for their assistance, we give our thanks.“

Rotable Repairs, formed in March 2002 and is committed to delivering high quality, cost-effective products and services to airlines, hangar facilities and stockists. Our team of staff is available to offer a friendly, professional service that is based on an experienced understanding of the aviation industry.
