AMETEK Aerospace & Defense Standardizes MRO Operations in France with Quantum Control

Component Control announced today that global customer AMETEK Aerospace & Defense’s MRO Division is continuing the rollout of Quantum Control to include its Antavia business in France. Scheduled for completion this summer, this facility will be the fifth AMETEK MRO implementation with Quantum Control since rollout began in 2010.

AMETEK’s MRO Division locations running Quantum include High Standard Aviation (HSA) in Miami, FL, Muirhead Avionics and AEM, both based in the United Kingdom, and its Singapore MRO business.

“Our goal is to standardize our MRO operations to improve process control and efficiencies, and provide economies of scale as we grow our business in both volume and geography,” said Stewart Douglas, Vice President, IT, for AMETEK Aerospace & Defense.  “With this additional location, we’re further streamlining our operations across Europe and broadening our real-time visibility into global MRO operations. AMETEK will install Quantum at three further global facilities before the full rollout is complete.”
