Our History

1984

Smiths Aerospace Ltd is an overhaul and repair facility based in the Pinnacles Industrial Estate, Harlow, Essex. The company was formed to take advantage of the precision engineering capabilities and facilities of the associate company Smith's (Harlow) Limited to offer a specializied Overhaul and Repair centre to the regional and commuter airline industry. 

Current Managing Director Rob Smith took control in the mid 1990s and the company - at the time known as Smith's (Harlow) Aerospace Ltd - moved premises in January 2003, where a significant change in direction of the company took place.

2015

Since the change of location the company has grown from strength to strength after simultaneously acquiring FAA approval amongst customer approvals. The number of staff members has doubled in that time and in 2010 the decision was made to hire a Technical Sales Engineer, which has also been a decision that has been proven justified.

Several members of staff have been employed by Smiths Aerospace for over 20 years, where their experience has been invaluable on many occasions. Most recently, in January 2015 the company has changed its name from Smith's (Harlow) Aerospace Limited to Smiths Aerospace Limited in order to gain more international recognition.
