Kassbell was founded in the early Nineties to fill a need in China 's burgeoning aviation industry. China had just reached the tipping point of its economic development, allowing Kassbell to play a key role in bridging the cultural and technical gaps between East and West. Prior to starting Kassbell Aviation, its founder – Peter Loh (a naval architect and engineer) had run Singapore's largest private shipyard for more than a decade; building jack up oil rigs, barges and other offshore marine support vessels.
Kassbell Aviation's early work included providing strategic marketing support for the certified, safe repair and overhaul of commercial aircraft parts. In almost two decades, Kassbell has built a brand synonymous with integrity, expertise and deep-rooted connections essential to the Asian market.
In addition, Kassbell Marine also provided strategic planning, marketing and corporate governance services for its offshore marine clientele.
