Foundation of Vartan Product Support GmbH in Germany to take care of the needs of cabin interior manufacturers at the Airbus final assembly line in Hamburg-Finkenwerder. The idea was to concentrate service needs of several manufacturers, enabling them to fulfill their requirements in relation to Airbus und to be present on site with flexible and cost-effective solutions by being the link between suppliers, airlines, and aircraft manufacturers.
Over the years, Vartan Product Support GmbH had grown with its customers and their expanding range of products for the Airbus A320-family. When the A380 was introduced in 2005, the time had come to take the strategic decision to expand the company. New technicians were hired and trained on the high cabin standards of the new aircraft program.
In the beginning of 2006 Global Interior Support GmbH - today Vartan Maintenance GmbH - was founded as a wholly owned subsidiary of Vartan Product Support GmbH to perform aircraft interior maintenance as well as after sales services under its EASA part 145 certificate.
Besides the head office in Hamburg, Vartan Product Support SARL was launched in Toulouse to offer support for customers at the biggest Airbus facility. Toulouse has become the biggest Vartan location worldwide today and serves Airbus A320-family, A330, A350 and A380 as well as ATR programs.
The Representative Office was established at the new Airbus A320-family final assembly line in Tianjin. Today, Vartan supports its customers on Airbus single aisle and long range aircraft programs in Tianjin.
