The business was started by Ralph G. Vincent (RGV), built on the solid values of good customer service, good communication and value for money. The company started out renting a single hangar bay from the airport, had its first hangar built in 1985 and now operates from its new purpose built facility in SE4 at Gloucestershire Airport.
Stuart J. Vincent joined RGV in 1983 and with Alec J. Vincent who joined in 1992, built the company to where it is now – the leading GA maintenance provider in the UK. The company values adhered to by their father are still at the core of the business.
