AAR explore establishment of supply chain, MRO 0perations in Russia

AAR CORP. announced June 18 that it has signed a letter of intent outlining a tentative two-phase project to establish a technical maintenance center for commercial aircraft in Ulyanovsk, Russia.

The project, as initially defined, includes an aircraft parts distribution and logistics center, scheduled to open in mid-2014, followed by a commercial aircraft maintenance facility, scheduled to open in 2015.

Our long-term growth strategy continues to address what is clearly a global opportunity for value-added aviation services,î said David P. Storch, chairman and CEO of AAR CORP. ìWith this agreement, AAR will extend its superior value proposition into this rapidly growing, yet significantly underserved market in Russia and eastern Europe. We believe we are in an excellent position to leverage our expertise to establish a world-class facility with a comprehensive service offering to support a wide range of customers throughout the region. We are confident that with the assistance of strong, capable partners and the continued support of the Russian government, we can bring this project to fruition.

Konstantin Koloskov, principal at Tur Partners LLC, a Chicago-based adviser specializing in infrastructure development within Russia, commented, We are very pleased to work with AAR on the exploration of this important project. The Russian aviation marketplace, the excellent support of the leadership in Russia, and AARís industry leading position make a powerful combination that we expect will lead to a successful launch and strengthen Ulyanovskís position as an aviation center of excellence.î
