ACLAS Technics moved into a new 14,500 sq.ft. facility near Edinburgh Airport in mid-2014, receiving its FAA accreditation on the day before the official opening. Uniquely, the company was the first outside the United States to be formally approved by the FAA in four years due to new procedures driven by the global security situation.

The move represented a change in focus for the company and this is turn was marked by a name change, from Air Contractors Engineering to ACLAS Technics. The aim was to reflect the range of specialist structural services that would now become the main customer proposition.

New equipment was brought in to offer enhanced services such as an OEM ATR flap alignment jig, the only one outside ATR in Europe. Other equipment and practices allow ACLAS Technics to offer a future proof anti-corrosion solution and crucially for airlines, guaranteed turnaround times that match their overall maintenance requirements.

The company's history dates back to 2002 and the formation of Aeroscot Engineering to meet the needs of airlines operating out of Edinburgh Airport in Scotland. Four years later in June 2006 the name was changed to align with its parent, Air Contractors (ACL) Ireland, and in 2008 the acquisition of the remaining shares from the company directors meant the company became a wholly owned subsidiary of the newly formed ASL Aviation Group.

ASL Aviation group is a global aviation leader, with 7 airlines, over 100 aircraft, 5 support companies and a number of leasing entities. The ASL Aviation Group operates worldwide and has airlines based in Ireland, France, South Africa, Switzerland, Hungary, Thailand, and India. The group employs 1500 people and its airlines operate a mixed turbo-prop and jet fleet for major express cargo integrators and on both scheduled and ACMI passenger services.
