EASA shop awards bonuses to employees to combat inflation
Here's the latest example of how EASA shops are branching out to service new equipment—to the direct benefit of their workers. Not only is it an EASA shop, but it's noteworthy that the owner/operator of Fletcher Moorland mentions renewables and EVs as boosting his revenues on his way to awarding all of its 86 employees with a four-figure bonus.

Added significance comes in the reasoning cited for the employees bonuses: to cope with rising energy and fuel costs due to inflation, something we're all currently grappling with.
The 75-year business at Fletcher Moorland's Stoke-on-Trent location in England has made its name servicing electric motors and doing servo repair, which it added earlier than most in 1980. Their goals reflect those of shops and service centers we see having success over the years:
"Life-cycle extension and maintenance is at the core of what we do, our workshops are open and operated 24 hours a day, 365 days a year because we know breowns and the need for reactive maintenance can be at any time," the company says on its website.
