AJW Group and Aviation Technical Services (ATS) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to enable a comprehensive offering of integrated solutions for the global aviation market.
Together, AJW and ATS will provide operators with a much broader scope of capabilities through their combined strengths that address an increasing demand for comprehensive services and supply chain value propositions. Airlines looking to reduce non value added overhead costs while optimizing investments in inventory will benefit from this alliance.
Through the deal, ATS will gain valuable access to AJW’s extensive Boeing and Airbus component inventories, as well as an expanded scope of component repair capabilities provided by AJW Technique. AJW will offer customers expanded PBH solutions benefiting from the range of services offered by ATS Components and repair services.
ATS President and CEO Matt Yerbic says, “This partnership will see two of the largest and most experienced companies in the industry working together to deliver innovative solutions for our joint customers.”
“We already serve a global customer base of more than 800 airlines with over 400 aircraft under contract,” explains Christopher Whiteside, President, AJW Group. “The close partnership with ATS will help us to reach U.S. airlines with a compelling and fresh approach, thereby furthering our joint ambitions to become the partner of choice for airlines seeking competitive advantage. This perfectly complements what we can offer and ensures that together we can truly drive down direct maintenance costs (DMCs) for operators.”
Over the course of the next few weeks, AJW and ATS will define the joint market solutions with a view to launching formally in September at MRO Europe, London: 25-26 September 2013 (Booth 1418).
