Top Aviation Supplier AAR to Showcase Broad Capabilities at MRO Europe

Full line of products and services will be highlighted at major London expo next week

LONDON – AAR (NYSE: AAR), a leading global provider of aviation services and technology products for commercial airlines, government and defense agencies and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), will showcase the full range of its growing European market offerings at the MRO Europe exhibition and conference, September 24-26.

Visitors to Booth 540 at the Exhibition Centre London, or ExCeL, will learn about AAR’s European expansion, including its Amsterdam distribution hub and three acquisitions in the past two years that have helped bolster its offerings. Cargo loading systems and lightweight container solutions are available through its two European subsidiaries Telair International, based in Germany, and Nordisk Aviation Products, based in Norway. In addition, AAR supports component repair management for airlines, OEMs, and MRO providers through its subsidiary Airinmar, located near London’s Heathrow Airport. All three companies were acquired in 2011.

AAR also provides logistics support for the United Kingdom's Royal Air Force fleet of E-3D Sentry Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft at RAF Waddington Lincoln as part of a Northrop Grumman¬¬–led team. AAR’s presence in Europe began nearly 50 years ago when it opened an aircraft component repair facility in Amsterdam.

“Our deep roots in the UK and across Europe have enabled us to expand our global operations and service offerings, leading to operational efficiencies, reduced turnaround times and increased parts and aircraft availability to our customers,” said Carl Glover, Vice President Sales, AAR Aviation Supply Chain Group.

AAR has been ranked the No. 1 MRO provider in North America and No. 3 in the world, according to industry surveys. Its close-to-the-customer business model, combined with a broad range of capabilities, help customers operate more efficiently, lower costs and maintain high levels of quality, safety and service.

AAR’s presence at the expo will reach beyond the exhibit hall. Two of the Company’s executives will be speaking during the conference portion of the event. Pascal Parant, Vice President, Corporate Marketing, will moderate a panel on the Impact of the Surplus Market on Engine MRO at 10:45 a.m., September 25. That discussion will explore how MRO operators and OEMs can best take advantage of the fast-growing surplus-parts sector created by engine fleet phase-outs. At noon that same day, AAR’s Glover will participate in an Inventory Optimization panel, exploring such topics as how much of their inventory airlines should own and manage themselves and various stocking principles.

MRO Europe is organized by Aviation Week Events and is attended by representatives of airlines, OEMs, MRO service providers, suppliers, leading companies, and regulators.
