InterSky Precision Instruments, Inc. is a 32-year-old company, which has made its name in aviation component maintenance, according to Memphis Business Journal. It handles repairs for companies such as Boeing, FedEx, and the U.S. Air Force.
Mainly repairing cockpit instrumentation for commercial, corporate, and government aircraft, InterSky also fixes aircraft lighting, probes, and accessories such as fans and motors, and it calibrates equipment.
Originally launched in North Hollywood, California, the business migrated to Memphis, Tennessee, 13 years ago. The company’s inventory has a commercial value of more than $30 million.
“The aviation business is very capital intensive, especially for a small business,” said David Hughes, InterSky’s vice president of government services.
For just over a year, Southern California Aviation (SCA) LLC has been working with InterSky. SCA stores and maintains commercial aircraft, and it sends equipment to InterSky for repair and recertification.
“Compared to other vendors I’ve dealt with, their open line of communication is 100 percent,” said Lisa Mullaney, purchasing manager.
InterSky is expanding its horizon to expand its business. As part of the company’s versatility, it sees growth possibilities using the same skills but in different industries.
