Helicopter Maintenance Platforms (A Division of Factory Supply) was started in the year 2000 with the purpose of simplifying the process of purchasing access products and industrial equipment, such as ladders, fixed ladders, work platforms, and maintenance platforms, by offering a better, more globalized shopping experience for our customers.
History of our Parent Company – Factory Supply
Over time, we began to specialize in access and maintenance equipment (ladders and work platforms) and discovered that our customers often had special needs and were not able to safely apply standard, off the shelf products to solve their access problems.
Our owner, who previously worked for a major airline as an airport services manager, was familiar with aircraft maintenance department equipment problems, so we began to offer off the shelf and customized equipment and maintenance stands. We have our own, in-house design department, so working with our customers’ engineering, safety or maintenance departments, cooperating together and by using tools like Solid Works, we develop designs based on direct customer input.
We use our own hand picked, quality manufacturers to fabricate our equipment and ship, direct from the manufacturer to you.
As a small business, we pride ourselves on good old fashioned customer service, providing quick turn around quotes, innovative design and quality manufacturing at affordable prices. We have been a GO TO solution for companies like Lockheed Martin, SpaceX, Caterpillar Tractor and many other Fortune 500 Companies.
