Montreal-based AJW Technique, the maintenance hub for AJW Group's component repair and overhaul service, has commited to enhanced collaboration with North American OEM service centre Liebherr Aerospace Saline.
The effort will enable the two businesses to better support operators across the world, with AJW Technique receiving access to the OEM's new and serviceable market and exchange inventory. This means that AJW Group will have direct access to Liebherr Aerospace components that can be traced, sold and exchanged dependent on a customers' individual needs.
AJW Technique will provide Liebherr Aerospace with component packages of inventory for its Used Serviceable Material (USM) offering, whilst AJW Leasing will provide Liebherr Aerospace with component packages for sales and leasing when needed. Further, the exchange of services workload will be reviewed as well.
AJW Technique vice president of MRO sales Frank Boni says: “Our new collaboration will deliver synergies that will enable us to jointly offer aircraft operators worldwide best-in-class and complimentary services. Partnering with leading OEMs to develop complementary relationships is an integral part of our strategy of driving trade and MRO reciprocal work globally. We are continually looking at how we can expand our portfolio of OEM partnerships to enable us to offer a wider range of mutually attractive customer solutions.”
