Mickael VillermetFounder & CEO
I always tell my team that our best sales persons are our customers! We cannot hide behind a famous brand or large corporation, our success is based on our operator satisfaction by providing a reliable and efficient service. Looking at our growing fleet and customer base, I think we did well but there are always ways of improvements. I can only thank all my team for their dedicated work, our experienced engineers will train the younger ones and looking forward expending!
Back in 2006, the requirement to contract CAMO was not yet in place for most of the air authorities, but neither the operator nor their contracted repair station could offer efficient services and this is how AMES came to life. After spending more than 6 years in the planning department of a reputable repair station, I decided to take my chance and could count on 2 clients for 3 BBJs. I didn’t want to only be a user of on-line tracking systems and decided to develop dedicated IT tools which allow us today to offer recognized CAMO services for more than 20 airplanes.
