Transaero Inc. Celebrates 60 Years


Melville, New York - Transaero Inc., a leading distributor of aerospace products is celebrating 60 years of successfully serving the airline, life support and military markets globally. 

Shell Youngwall established Transaero Inc. in 1954, from his apartment in Manhattan as a favor to his friends back in Sweden.  His knowledge of aviation, gained while serving in the Swedish Air Force during WWII, helped him to source parts here in the United States for equipment left behind during the war.  Transaero started as a fixed wing spare parts broker but quickly transformed into a distribution company with more and more repeat customers.  Its start in the commercial aviation markets is still today, the company’s backbone.

Transaero has grown into a global leader in the aerospace aftermarket, supplying a vast array of spare and replacement parts.  The expansion of the Aviation life support product offering and of the military components division has propelled Transaero’s growth in both the domestic and international markets.  In 2007 Transaero moved into their current corporate headquarters, a 100,000 square foot facility in Melville, New York, to efficiently handle the growth in the business.    Shortly thereafter, all their efforts and expansions resulted in breaking the $100M sales mark in a single year.

Today, Transaero remains a privately owned business, with Perry Youngwall serving as President.  The company, with its international sales force of technically trained, degreed engineers, continues to offer a wide array of aerospace and aircraft product options for both pilots and ground troops for a multitude of mission and/or applications.  Perry Youngwall is quoted as saying “It’s a testament to our employees, supplier partners and customers that we’ve been able to succeed as a family owned business for over 60 years.  I’m extremely grateful and proud to be a part of Transaero’s legacy.”  Whether the need is by many of the world’s airlines or militaries, Transaero has the capability to service just about any aerospace product requirement.  Transaero has grown from one office in the United States to nine regional offices globally with the resources to offer turnkey service to our aerospace customers worldwide.
