ITS was founded in May 2002 by two entrepreneurs, Scott Tinker and Ryan Kohnke. For the first five years, they focused their energy on a strategy of purchasing surplus and obsolete parts from several sources, reselling them to various and diverse customers in the Aerospace Aftermarket industry.
The partners then made a momentous decision that would change the future of the company and set it on a new strategic course: they purchased a complete airplane, an MD-83. This new strategy transformed the company from a parts wholesaler to a provider of more complex airframe components and systems, developing in-house technical expertise on the entire airframe. Throughout the years, ITS has expanded the number of aircraft types they serve as well as their offerings to include engines and APUs, following a strategic plan driven by current and forecasted market demand.
ITS is headquartered in a state-of-the-art facility in Chandler, AZ and is an ISO 9001:2015 and AS9120B:2016 organization, ensuring the quality level expected by its customers.
