PDQ Airspares was the brainchild of two young entrepreneurs from the South of England, who mapped out a plan to provide a fast and efficient spares supply service to the global Airline industry. In 1990, from the humble beginnings of a 5,000-square-foot rural farmland warehouse, the Fordingbridge-based company was born.

Founders Chris Miller and Nic Lewis, having both come from Aviation backgrounds, quickly developed an understanding of what makes for a successful supply operation. From the outset, it was clear that they wanted to be known as a company that was both swift and reliable, which was reflected in their choice of company name – Pretty Darn Quick!

Armed with a clipboard, a loan, and a sack of enthusiasm, they purchased their first package of B707 spares in 1991 and set about the task of making it available to the world.

In 2018, after 28 years of industry customer service, FDH Aero LLC, a portfolio company of Audax Private Equity, acquired PDQ Airspares. The addition of PDQ broadened FDH Aero’s aftermarket presence and expanded its international operating footprint through PDQ’s facilities in the UK, Poland, Singapore, and China. 

As PDQ Airspares, an FDH Company, moves forward, we remain relentlessly focused on service, with an experienced team of thought-leaders to support all your needs. We are your single-source supply chain partner, delivering the full breadth of products and services your OEM or Aftermarket program demands.
