Company History

PTB Group Limited (“PTB”) was established in 2001, when it was incorporated to acquire the Brisbane assets of Pacific Turbine Pty Ltd ACN: 079 166 653. It focused on providing services in relation to the Pratt & Whitney PT6A and Honeywell TPE331 light turbine engines.

In October 2006 the Company announced it had acquired the aircraft and associated parts of the UK companies, Emerald Airways Ltd and Emerald Airways Engineering Ltd, for approximately $16.25 million.

In December 2006 the Company moved from the NSX to the ASX. In conjunction with this move the Company issued 2.5 million shares at $2 each to raise $5 million. This followed capital raisings totaling $7.9 million earlier in the period to fund part of the IAP Group and Emerald assets acquisitions.

In June 2007 a USD 40 million financing and rental fund was created with debt provided by an Australian financial institution. The purpose of the fund was to acquire and refurbish a diverse array of aviation assets for resale or lease. By this time, PTB Emerald had also refurbished and delivered one of the ATP and three of the HS748 freighters to European customers.

Prime Turbines became a proud member of Pacific Turbine Brisbane (PTB) Group in 2020, adding to the Australian-based aviation part sales and services company’s capabilities along with locations in Brisbane (Australia), Pacific Turbine USA (Miami), and International Air Parts (Sydney). The addition of Prime Turbines expanded PTB’s MRO services global presence in the PT6A, PT6T, and TPE331 engine markets.

"I just wanted to pass on our appreciation for PTB's response to the oil leak issues we had the other week. We were really stretched for aircraft coverage in our Air Ambulance role and found the urgency which your team responded somewhat of a relief. Matt and Josh proved to be excellent ambassadors for PTB, and conducted themselves with absolute professionalism. We look forward to working with your team in the future."

"Your [PTB's] willingness to go the extra mile has been demonstrated so often that I know it was not a once off flash in the pan event.... Your overhauled engines have gone the distance and the Power by the Hour contract has worked well. Your staff are all amazing..."
