The ceremony, one of the largest events of its kind, distinguishes the year’s most outstanding companies in the aerospace industry, and AJW saw again its efforts recognized for the services provided to more than 1,000 airlines in 117 countries. The criteria for the award included parts stocked, which AJW is able to source and supply from its global network. It also takes into account AJW’s current and new clients over the past 12 months, the global locations in which it operates, and the number of employees.

Christopher Whiteside, President and CEO of AJW Group, said:

“We are honoured to receive this award and the recognition from the industry that accompanies it. 2016 saw many changes for us – we expanded our executive team to drive change and spearhead new initiatives, we relocated our Engines division from Wales to our Headquarters near London Gatwick to strengthen the level of support given to customers and we invested in technical expertise and quality management systems, offering customers enhanced technical expertise worldwide. We see all our customers, suppliers and employees as integral partners in our business and this approach has enabled us to build relationships based on mutual respect whilst providing unparalleled customer service worldwide.

“Receiving awards is an opportunity to celebrate the hard work of our employees and winning such an accolade for the fifth consecutive year is a real honour. This year we plan to continue focusing on innovation and developing our approach to be as efficient as possible.”


Ian Malin, Treasurer, Director and Chief Investment Officer, AJW Group, who accepted the award commented,

“We are delighted to accept this award and are honoured that AJW is recognized by our industry peers. Receiving this award for the fifth year is not something we take for granted – we work hard to uphold the confidence that customers place in us and live up to this prestigious accolade. Our team has a good reason to be proud of their performance in 2016 and even more reason to strive to be even better! It is an excellent start to the year for us and a boost for the whole company.”
