International Track 200

Planes need cleaning and sprucing up, and Manchester airport-based Airline Services has been providing these services to 100 airlines, including SAS and Air France, for 20 years. Now operating from 11 British airports, the company offers exterior and interior cleaning for planes, de-icing, carpet manufacture and installation, seat repair, seat cover and curtain manufacture and laundry. It also supplies and repairs electronics such as seat-back entertainment systems and galley equipment. In addition, it exports aircraft parts, including wheels and brakes, particularly to Russia and former Soviet Union countries. International sales have risen 52% a year, from £5.5m in 2007 to £12.7m in 2009 under chief executive Bryan Bodek.
