aviation ground support equipment

Since 1974, J&D McLennan has been involved in the manufacture and supply of aviation ground equipment throughout the South Pacific region. Our primary product line is passenger boarding bridges. We have supplied over 300 of these to airports throughout New Zealand, Australia, Fiji and Papua New Guinea.

Over time we have grown our range to include a wide selection of manufactured ancillary products including hose reelers, in-ground pit systems, blast fences and baggage hoists. We are proud to have the capabilities and in-house skills that enable us to design and manufacture these in our own workshops.

To support our clients and products we have dedicated maintenance staff available to service and maintain a wide range of mechanical and electrical systems and equipment. Building on our manufacturing base we have expanded our capabilities and now offer SCADA integration as well.
