Administrative / Biographical History

John Swire & Sons formed PAMAS in 1947, channelling part of Taikoo Dockyard's rehabilitation energies into developing an aircraft engineering facility at Kai Tak Airfield in order to capture new opportunities in the aviation industry. By 1950, Pacific Air Maintenance Services [PAMAS] had merged with the rival Jardine Air Maintenance Co. [JAMCo] and had evolved into the Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company [HAECO] - today a world-renowned facility.
