Spika has partnered with aircraft maintenance and manufacturing facilities for over a decade to design the best products to meet the needs of the aviation industry. Our industry-leading platforms for helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft will boost your efficiency and keep your people and aircraft safe.
Maintenance Stands: Whether you need a large system for full phase maintenance, a smaller, more versatile unit for daily maintenance, or a multi-purpose stand to access upper areas of your equipment, we’ve got you covered. With features such as synchronized height-adjustability, clear-span designs, thinline decks and demanding overreach capabilities, Spika stands are built for productivity. Constructed of lightweight aluminum, our expert designs make our stands the most robust in the industry, so hangar door tracks, flight lines, and rough handling are no match for a Spika maintenance stand. Learn more about our aircraft maintenance stands.
Specialized Work Environments: Our team is experienced in building equipment for use in FOD control areas and other work environments that have precise requirements. We understand the complexities of designing for interface with delicate surfaces such as aircraft skins and LO technology. From initial design through final inspection and shipment, we make sure your new product adheres to all the requirements and restrictions of your facility.
Support Equipment: Every part you handle is valuable. When plywood and screws don’t cut it, we can provide you with high quality equipment to support, store, protect, and transport your parts and components, including blades, cowling, and engines. Learn more about our support equipment.
Custom Design Expertise: Our design and engineering team has years of experience creating products that interface with a large variety of equipment, tooling, and fixtures. Using 3D solid modeling, we excel in designing for products with multiple components and unique requirements, such as space and size restrictions, demanding overreach requirements, height adjustability, and asymmetrical work surfaces. We are experts in safety compliance, equipment interface, complex upper-level access, multi-functionality, versatility, and ergonomics. Learn more about our design capabilities.
Efficiency Improvements: The right equipment can increase your technicians' productivity, saving you both time and money. Our integrated work platforms and support equipment designed specifically for your aircraft ensure you have precise access, clearance, and support for your exact needs. Time-saving features like electric actuation, adjustable handrails, and friction-locking sliders pave the way for productivity, and with options such as on-board air, electric, vacuum, and lighting, your techs will work a lot smarter, not harder. Learn more about our efficiency options for work platforms.
Quality: We’re from Montana — and it shows. We rely on our Montanan work ethic to design and manufacture the absolute best equipment in the industry. Every product gets tested to 4x its load rating capacity and must pass a comprehensive quality inspection before leaving our facility. "Good enough" isn't in our vocabulary — our products have the same integrity and Montana grit that we're made up of.
Safety: Keep your people safe and your costs low by using equipment designed with safety as a priority, not an afterthought. As experts in OSHA and ANSI — as well as other international safety standards — we design and manufacture the safest products on the market.
Small Business Benefits with Large Business Capabilities: As a small business, we have the freedom to be innovative and responsive to your needs throughout the design and manufacturing process, and we work hard to accommodate to unforeseen changes in the requirements for your project. We keep our relationships with our customers personal and transparent, and our expert capabilities in design and manufacturing make sure you're receiving the same depth and breadth of technical expertise that you'd typically find in a larger organization.

Individualized Project Management: Whether you have a short-term project for one piece of equipment or a project that outfits multiple facilities, you're assigned an expert project manager to guide you through all steps of the process, from design to delivery. Our project managers work directly with our sales representatives, designers, engineers, and production managers to make sure your project is on-schedule and delivered on time. Your success is our top priority.
