About us

The MEL Group

MEL Aviation Ltd was founded in 1968 by the late Laurence Smith and provides a full service and repair facility for a wide range of aircraft-related products.

In the last 45 years – through both acquisition and steady, organic growth – we have become a total engineering solutions provider to the worldwide aerospace and defence market, and to industry in general.

Using our series of cost-effective engineering products, services and solutions, we help customers solve their problems. That combination of expertise, ingenuity, and range is why we’ve been able to evolve – and it underpins our success as a selfsufficient, financially stable business.
