Welcome To RHE Southern Limited

The picture above shows the standard of refurbishment/overhaul carried out at our premises – a 30/40 year old jack now looks and operates like one just manufactured. This ‘zero hour’ refurbishment service, along with our onsite testing programs for aircraft maintenance companies worldwide are the key points behind the longevity of RHE.

Recently, we undertook a contract for Middle East Airlines (MEA) at their headquarters in Beirut, Lebanon. This entailed the on-site refurbishment of their existing jacks as well as training them in the use of the test equipment they purchased – more details and images here.
