The company's first laboratory was established at Fairoaks airport in Surrey in 1976. Providing oil analysis services to the aviation industry, the company’s reputation for providing a fast and efficient service quickly grew.
Jet-Care, Gas Path Analysis service was founded and developed its own suite of software. Today, Jet-Care is recognised as a world leader in engine trending with 14,000 engines monitored worldwide, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
The demand for oil analysis and engine trend monitoring services was such that within a couple of years, Spectro had set up a further laboratory in North America near New-York, operating as Jet-Care International Inc.
To fulfil the growing needs of our European customers, Spectro established a third laboratory in Switzerland, near Basel in 2000. Spectro Oil AG laboratory is accredited by Swiss Accreditation Service (SAS) to ensure compliance with the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standard.
