From a small manufacturing shop dating back to 1951, to an African engineering powerhouse, Parnis continues to deliver service excellence worldwide.
Although historically our business roots were in engineering, Parnis Airport Services (Parnis) has grown its business over the years into large scale projects for the aviation industry, pipeline and integrity systems, and material handling solutions.
Parnis has enjoyed a long and productive relationship with the Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) which started over 25 years ago. Parnis has the distinction of being the only South African company to have locally co-designed, manufactured and installed passenger boarding bridges at OR Tambo International (formerly Jan Smuts) Airport, Johannesburg between 1992 and 1994. (then Jan Smuts. Since then we have completed numerous aviation projects ranging from upgrades and maintenance of aviation fuel-hydrant systems to comply with the latest API and JIG standards; installation and maintenance of baggage handling and hold baggage screening systems; Visual guidance aircraft docking systems (VDGS) and 400 Hz Ground Power installations, and installation and maintenance of the Hydraulic Road Blockers.
