Re: Need Help (non structural)

The equipment you list is aviation ground support equipment that sometimes the
airport operator supplies to the airlines;  and sometimes is supplied by the
airlines operating the planes.  Sounds like your friend's project is a small
city airport serving short haul or tourist operations.  Try this website and look under commercial
suppliers or manufacturers for contacts.
