Since its foundation in May 2002, ITS has developed and refined a focused strategy of purchasing new surplus and obsolete commercial aircraft parts from OEMs and authorized distributors, reselling them to various and diverse customers within the Aerospace Aftermarket industry.

Through their first acquisition of a complete aircraft in 2007, ITS’s Leaders redirected the company’s focus to support the Used Serviceable Material (USM) market and the global air transport industry. This
new strategy began with the MD-80 family and transformed ITS from a parts wholesaler into a global supply chain company. ITS began providing complex components and systems while developing in-house technical expertise on the entire airframe. Throughout the years, ITS has expanded the number of aircraft types they serve and has strategized with current and forecasted market demand to include support for various engines and APUs.

From humble beginnings, ITS has successfully developed into an industry-leading supply chain partner to the air transport aftermarket industry. Now headquartered in Chandler, Arizona, in a 100,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility, our ISO 9001:2015, AS9120B:2016, and ASA-100 accreditations ensure the highest level of quality expected by our customers.
