Dunfermline, Scotland 23rd May 2014: Aviation software specialist, AvilT Ltd is celebrating 10 years in business this month and is marking this important milestone with the opening of a new office at Dunfermline, Scotland.
The company was founded by David Brown in 2004, following nearly 15 years in the provision of specialised development and IT consultancy services in a range of sectors and AviIT now employs 26 staff across operational bases in Scotland, Australia and the US.
AviIT launched its eMan solution for the management of technical manuals associated with aircraft maintenance and service activities in 2006 and major clients now include Monarch, Virgin Atlantic, Air Berlin Technik and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (Air Services).
In 2008, AvilT entered into a joint venture with a UK media business for the creation of portable inflight entertainment products under the Bluebox Avionics brand. The venture has seen great success and Bluebox products are currently used by almost 20 airlines including British Airways, Thai Airways, Hawaiian Airlines and Aeromexico. Earlier this year, Bluebox Ai, the iPad-based IFE system, was awarded the highly sought-after prize for ‘Best Handheld Inflight Entertainment System’.
David Brown, Chief Executive Officer of AviIT is delighted to be celebrating this anniversary. "It’s been a fantastic journey so far and I would never have guessed 10 years ago that AviIT would grow into a profitable business with a truly global footprint. We are so focused on delivering for our clients that we take little time to reflect on what we have achieved.”
“It’s been a very exciting first 10 years and I’m sure the next 10 will be equally so,” concludes Brown.
