They maintain a large inventory of off-the-shelf panels and offer the industry’s fastest turn time for specialized repairs.


Acadian works closely with OEMs and the FAA, to develop new techniques and processes which ensure their panels are competitive in price, fit correctly, and are manufactured to the same high standard as the original part.
