Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group (Booth 1229), which is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the opening of its first office in Canada, at Abbotsford, British Columbia, is emphasising its decade of in-country support to the growing Canadian defence industry, especially its extensive experience with the Lockheed C-130 Hercules.

To date, the company has worked on more than 300 Hercules transports, for 52 customers in 33 countries, including the CC-130s of the Royal Canadian Air Force.

Steve Fitz-Gerald, chief executive of Marshall Aerospace and Defence, commented: “The provision of in-country support is very much a Marshall strength, and we have a proven track record of collaborating with military and commercial organisations to deliver quantifiable end-use benefits.”

As well as providing local technical and engineering support, Marshall’s offices in Canada have access to the extensive skills and resources in Cambridge, UK, where the company employs more than 2,000 highly trained personnel.

Marshall Aerospace and Defence holds extensive airworthiness accreditations, granted by a variety of military and commercial regulatory authorities, aerospace companies and defence organisations, including Canada’s Department of National Defence.
