Baines Simmons raises profile at AP&M Expo
The Baines Simmons new business team was delighted by the interest shown in the company’s world class aviation safety solutions demonstrated at a stand taken at the AP&M Expo held at London’s Olympia exhibition centre on 4 and 5 May 2011.
With the objectives of raising the company’s profile, highlighting Baines Simmons’ world class Safety Management Systems credentials and selling its Open Training courses, the exhibition proved its worth in attracting people with budgets to spend on aviation safety solutions. The quality of other exhibitors as well as visitors proved to be very high, with impressive representation among accountable managers and directors.
Baines Simmons was in good company at the Expo, with a huge spread of international businesses, including Lufthansa, Fokker, CAAi, KLM UK, Heico, Eaton, Dunlop and British Airways Maintenance. Contact was established with a number of notable companies with which Baines Simmons will explore the potential to provide products and services and also where there are opportunities for joint ventures.
Having represented Baines Simmons on the stand during the entire exhibition, Chris Drew, Business Development Manager, said: "We were delighted with the enthusiasm that was shown in our world class aviation safety products and services. There is clearly a huge opportunity for us to explore potential with big organisations that not only have maintenance and continuing airworthiness organisations, but those with initial airworthiness approvals too. These businesses understand the value we offer and are increasingly aware of bringing the same benefits to the Part 21 design and production side."
