AAR ramps up parts availability in Europe

AAR, a global leader in the supply and repair of component parts for the aviation industry, is expanding its parts inventory for the European market, reducing lead times and shipping costs for its customers.

The companyís main distribution center in Amsterdam will carry an increased stock of high-demand airframe and engine-related components, along with bulky, difficult-to-move items such as aircraft surfaces and nacelles.

With more parts on hand locally, this move will ensure that customers can be supported quickly and more economically for their spare parts and inventory needs. The distribution center, located near Amsterdam Schipol Airport, has direct air and road links to many of AARís customers in the European Union, the Balkans and former Commonwealth of Independent States countries.

The center will also be able to better supply AARís Aircraft Component Services repair station in nearby Hoofddorp, Netherlands, where the Company repairs and overhauls an increasing amount of components on the Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Fokker, ATR, and Embraer aircraft lines. The Amsterdam center itself provides airframe and engine component repair work. With the increased inventory, ìwe can forward exchange a component out of the Amsterdam location and clients can send core repairs there, said Carl Glover, Vice President Sales for AARís Aviation Supply Chain Group ó Europe, Middle East and Africa.

ìThe Amsterdam center is an important hub within our local and global supply-chain network that efficiently and effectively supports our valued customers,î added Glover. ìThe facility now provides for shorter delivery times and greater local access to rotable products and genuine OEM-traceable inventory. With proximity to Schiphol Airport we can offer timely solutions to our customers throughout Europe, the CIS and even further afield.î
