Company Says The Move Will Improve Efficiencies In Repairs And
Independent component spares company A J Walter Aviation
announced Tuesday that it is opening its repairs and logistics
network directly to airlines, a move the company says should reduce
costs and achieve better efficiencies through reduced inventories,
guaranteed turn times and extended component reliability.
AJW says it spends in excess of $100 million on more than 24,000
individual repair orders annually, which is more than many
airlines. "This gives us considerable buying power which allows us
to offer very competitive pricing, turn times and warranties"
explains MRO Director, Conrad Vandersluis. "As an independent, AJW
also has the flexibility to choose only the best performing repair
shops. We have worked hard to build this advantageous position
within the aviation industry and our experienced team is now
available to work directly for airlines seeking to drive costs out
of their business and improve their asset management."
The company says it works with a streamlined vendor supply chain
of just over 50 primary repair shops and 200 approved facilities.
Quality, reliability and delivery underpin the priority service it
enjoys from a wide range of OEM, premier airline workshop and other
quality approved independent repair shops. By utilizing its
significant modern Airbus and Boeing inventories, AJW claims to be
able to underwrite this service with delivery guarantees as well as
offering complete commercial flexibility to suit all operation
