  • Building foundation

    APOC was founded in 2014 by aviation enthusiast Max Lutje Wooldrik. After selling his previous business, he spent a period embedded 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 was 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.
