Safe Fuel Systems was founded in 2002, by J.Rafael Fuentes and Ann R Justiz, who just happened to be husband and wife.
At the time of the epiphany, Ann had a great job working at Nestle Waters NA as an Employee Development Manager, Rafael was a Shop Manager at an MRO overseeing a handful of aviation mechanics & operations, but then when Rafael and Ann got married in early 2002 and had their daughter Sydney later the same year, they knew they wanted to create something better for her and the family.
Safe Fuel Systems, an aircraft repair station specializing in the repair of fuel systems, hydraulic, power-gen, and pneumatic components for commercial and military aircraft was born. When we first opened our doors, it was with the niche of repairing fuel components only, hence our name Safe Fuel Systems. It was a smart move, to start small, be great at it, and then expand. We quickly dominated the industry in our category, Quality and Service was synonymous with our name, winning the 145.com Top Shop Best Fuel Systems and Fuel Accessories Repair numerous times and earning awards from Boeing Aerospace Support Center for achieving Gold status.
As a husband and wife co-founding team, the dynamics of the relationship were obviously a bit different compared to the entrepreneurial norm. We had this natural unspoken law that we would divide and conquer, it flowed organically. In time we were able to train one another into the expert skillset of the other as needed.
But it was undeniable, the culture and the passion for the TEAM were at the top of the “WHY” we went into business. The opportunities we were able to provide to our employees to grow and learn under our roof was empowering. Helping our entry-level technicians with “no hold back” servant leadership attitude & creating programs like “Safe Fuel University”, creating a fun area called Hazmat Daycare for parents to bring their kids to work, on-site gym with a personal trainer, were just a few of the reasons that made Safe Fuel so special.
Fast forward to 2017, we made the challenging decision to merge and align forces with B&E Group, Accel Aviation, and B&E ACR to have some more presence in the market and create a synergy that was appealing to many as we grew. In 2019, StandardAero purchased the group we created. We feel honored to have been acquired by StandardAero and to leave a great legacy for our employees. Till this day, Rafael and Ann continue to be involved in the growth and development of the company.Our Facility
