Goodrich Signs 2 Key Support Agreements with Emirates
- General Terms Agreement provides framework for all future aftermarket support agreements
- 10-year Specific Business Agreement covers overhaul of A380 passenger evacuation slides
Joel Haldemann, Goodrich's vice president Europe, Middle East, Africa MRO explained, "Both the GTA and the SBA are significant milestones in the growing business relationship between Goodrich and Emirates. The agreements add to the substantial body of MRO work we already perform for Emirates, and demonstrate our drive to deliver effective, regionally-based MRO and support solutions, all while focusing on speed and ease of doing business."

Ammar Al Zaben, Emirates' vice president of procurement (Aircraft) added, "We view the two agreements with Goodrich as win-win for both companies. The GTA will vastly simplify and speed up discussions for future tender opportunities, reducing time and resource requirements and increasing business efficiency. Additionally, Goodrich's comprehensive, quality support offerings and locally-based MRO campus make it easier to do business. These were key factors in our decision to outsource this activity and to award this SBA to Goodrich."
