New Markets and New Facility
The company began the year by opening its first stock hub in Singapore, a move that was followed by the Miami hub and, soon, hubs in China. APOC plans to triple the size of our facilities with the opening of a new purpose-built warehouse adjacent to the present site close to Rotterdam airport.
APOC continued its expansion by:
- opening a dedicated Landing Gear division in Vilnius, Lithuania.
- securing an equity partner – Egeria – to assist the company in further development.
- ranking 𝟭𝟰𝘁𝗵 in The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 – annual ranking of the fifty fastest-growing technology companies in the Netherlands.
Year of rapid growth
In 2019, APOC experienced an exciting period of sustained growth. In a forward-thinking move, the company diversified by opening a new Engines division and moved to a brand new facility close to Rotterdam The Hague Airport.
Exceptional Quality Control
APOC’s year culminated with a highly impressive quality control result – a rejection rate of 0.7% – far below the industry average.
ALICANTO – Industry-leading software
APOC began using our industry bench-mark proprietary software platform ALICANTO – a platform that updates available stock in real-time every 5 seconds.
APOC achieved accreditation by ASA 100 certification, emphasising impartiality, competence, reliability; ISO 9001 certification for exceptional quality management standards; AS 9120 certification for quality management for aerospace industry stockist distributors.
APOC was founded in 2014 by aviation enthusiast Max Lutje Wooldrik. After selling his previous business, he spent a period exploring in the aviation industry where he spotted an opportunity to take a modernised, tech-enabled approach to the aviation part-out business. From the beginning, the company’s core activity has been the part-out of airframes, a process that involves the sourcing of decommissioned airframes for tear down, and subsequent re-selling of the resourced parts.
