11 September 2017
Belgian GSE supplier, TCR Group, has announced the acquisition of Emerge Engineering & Maintenance, an Australian-based airport GSE services company. Emerge operates across 36 airports in Australia and currently has six workshops at major airports and staffing of more than 60 employees. In total, Emerge performs GSE services on more than 5,400 GSE assets nationally for key ground handling, airline and general aviation customers. GSE services offered by Emerge include repair and maintenance (R&M), breakdown recovery, GSE spare parts and GSE fleet management. As a world leader in GSE services, this acquisition is viewed as an important step in TCR’s growth in the Asia-Pacific region. Australia is a key market and TCR is hoping to develop close partnerships with local Australian customers and with global TCR customers that are already operating within Australia. The company is proud to welcome the Emerge team into the TCR family. TCR aims to combine Emerges’ solid foundation and market position, with TCR’s global expertise, relationships and resources to provide a bright future for the Australian business moving forward. The Australian business will continue to be managed by the existing executive directors of Emerge, Craig Ward and Martin Oldfield, with the continued focus on delivering added value to customers that has led to the company’s growth over recent years.
