Aircraft Tool Supply celebrates 40th anniversary

OSCOLA, Mich. — Aircraft Tool Supply, a manufacturer and distributor of sheet metal tools, riveting products, inspection equipment, and aircraft engine maintenance tools, is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.

Aircraft Tool Supply was the brainchild of Frank W. Barber, who started the company in 1974 in a small machine shop in Novi, Mich.

Desmond Lynch later joined the crew at ATS in 1990. As two former military members, they joined forces to modernize and change several factions of the company. Des, with his computer skills, and Frank with his knowledge and the tools needed to maintain them, helped ATS evolve into one of the front-runners of the aviation industry, company officials noted.

Aircraft Tool Supply is noted for its Pro Series line of tools with a lifetime warranty, as well as for the manufacturing of several classic aviation tools, including the Time-Rite and Spark Plug Cleaner and Tester.

Today, Aircraft Tool Supply is owned by Desmond Lynch and employs 22 workers.
