Company Profile

  • Our Principles: Optimal Access and Safe Maintenance

    Your mechanics and engineers should focus on the maintenance job, not on how to get safe and optimal access to the aircraft: We know aircraft maintenance and we know what your challenges are.

    We work together with you to find the best solution for your access needs.

    Our stands and docking systems are designed with the highest international health and safety standards and constantly improved to create optimal use.

  • Your Wish: Multi-purpose, Cost Effective, Turn-Key

    Hangars are full of equipment. Lack of space is an issue. NIJL equipment is designed to cater for several aircraft types.

    So with one piece of NIJL equipment you can access several aircraft types.

    This means less equipment needed and more effective use of your budget.

    We supply our products turn-key. We have extensive experience with the assembly of docking systems within a hangar environment.

  • Quality and High-Tec: Never Compromised

    Our products are designed for durability.

    They are strong and can handle the rough environment in and outside the hangar and on the apron.

    Depending on the customer’s wishes we can supply our systems with manual operation or completely computerized operations.

  • Project Excellence

    We deliver our projects in a professional and highly effective manner. Off course we benefit a lot of being a relatively small-sized company in which our staff can work very close together in teams and show the ‘hands-on’ flexibility to always meet the client’s needs.

    On the other hand we practice modular engineering, using the latest insights in technology and we have standardized our processes and introduced a lot of quality cycles and control procedures over the years in our disciplined way of working. This to ensure our professional standards and to continuously improve our products and the way we deliver them.
