APOC Aviation, a leasing, trading, aircraft component and part-out specialist, is ramping up their presence in Asia to ensure they have the resources and assets ready to serve the thriving aviation sector. As part of this process, Hardi Jamil has been appointed as Sales Manager for Asia.
APOC has had a presence in Asia since 2021, when they launched a new warehouse facility in Singapore, the first of their stock-hubs of modern A320 family and B737 components to be opened outside of Europe. Now, with a dedicated Sales Manager also based in Singapore, they will deliver a streamlined, faster service to customers in the area.
“Asia remains a significant market for APOC and is predicted to see the highest levels of growth compared to other parts of the world. Further development of our team in the region is a logical step for us,” said Kevin Wall, Chief Commercial Officer.

Kevin Wall, CCO at APOC explains that most aviation experts agree that the biggest impact on the USM market will occur in Asia. “According to recent reports and industry forecasts, the aviation industry in Asia is expected to see significant growth in the coming years, driven by factors such as expanding economic development, proliferation of low-cost carriers, increasing middle class, and rising disposable income.
“In line with this, the used serviceable material market for the Asian aviation industry is also expected to grow in the coming years, due to the increasing demand for replacement parts and maintenance services for ageing aircraft fleet and low-cost carrier activity across the region. Some studies estimate that the aviation market in Asia will build at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 6-7% from 2021 to 2026,” continues Wall.
