“This is a very positive development for both businesses,” said Frater. “We had been looking for an opportunity to expand and it was clear from our previous dealings with ACS that the company provided a very good fit with our business model.
“Our strategy of developing various divisions has proven very successful and this deal will allow us to explore new opportunities to add to our client list which includes such prestigious names as Emirates, Etihad Airways, Apollo Aviation Group and IAS Medical Ltd.”
Originally opened in 1936, Perth Airport is positioned in the heart of Scotland, located 4 miles north-east of the town giving good access to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee.
