An interview with Kevin Sargent – Chairman, Farsound Aviation

I understand you joined Farsound Aviation from Pattonair. Can you tell us why you made the move?Yes, I became Executive Chairman of Farsound Aviation in July 2014 after 10 years in various senior roles at Pattonair. Farsound is working in an area of the industry that I know very well, it is a dynamic, rapidly growing company and I like the way the owners of the business choose to operate.

How would you define what Farsound Aviation does?Farsound is very focused on the aero engine MRO sector, putting the right stock on our customers’ sites, ready to use next to the production line. So we’re talking about direct line feed solutions, kitting solutions, consignment stock in carousels and vending machines. We’re also talking about working hand-in-hand with our customers and putting our own local people right there on the shop floor. It’s our job to manage the uncertainties inherent in the MRO business, so we supply the right inventory at up to the point where the customer actually needs to use it.
