Welcome to Sheffield Aerospace
Heritage and Mission
Sheffield Aerospace provides specialized professional consulting services to the aerospace industry. The heritage of the executive team proudly traces to Sequa Corporation, a $2B Fortune 1000 company, and Chromalloy Gas Turbine, which grew under their leadership to become the largest independent provider of aftermarket gas turbine advanced component repairs, coatings, and alternative parts, providing tremendous savings to the global air carriers, military, ground-based turbine users, and the Maintenance / Repair / Overhaul (MRO) facilities. The founders established SJH Sheffield Holdings in 2010. Which, in addition to Sheffield Aerospace, includes Sheffield Scientific and Hartigen, energy sector companies engaged in fossil-fuel/nuclear power industry consulting, customized IT solutions & decision support software; as well as Tomcat Aviation, an aerospace MRO with broad capabilities.
The strength of Sheffield Aerospace today lies in our company’s broad aviation industry experience and deep understanding of the needs of carrier clients. We have the relevant experience, analytical tools, and data to hit the ground running. Each associate recognizes that helping our clients be successful requires much more than using “canned”, one-size-fits-all solutions.
Our engagements provide unbiased support to client engineering and supply chain organizations, reducing their material maintenance expense. We create value for our clients by leveraging existing client resources with focused, expert support that is compatible with each client’s culture, philosophy, and objectives.
