AerFin, the aircraft after-market service provider, features on the league table for the first time after recording an annual profit growth of 129% over the last three years, placing the company at number 5 in the listing.

The 20th Annual Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100 league table ranks Britain’s private companies with the fastest-growing profits. AerFin has spent more than £100m buying aircraft, engines and spares, which it recycles, sells or leases back into the aviation industry - supplying its 415 customers in 62 countries.

“We are delighted to have received this level of recognition and feature in The Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100. In the past three years we have continued to expand our global footprint, win contracts with some of the world’s leading airlines and bring new and innovative support solutions to the aerospace industry.” The company’s success can be attributed to our innovative approach, a lean business model and of course the dedication and commitment of our entire team”.
