AAR to Showcase its Global Capabilities at AvWeek’s MRO Europe 2014

Company executives featured on panels about extending the lifecycle of aircraft and supply-chain solutions that reduce costs and increase efficiencies

WOOD DALE, Illinois – AAR, a global leader in aircraft maintenance, cargo and supply chain solutions to the world’s airlines, will showcase its total support capabilities at Aviation Week’s MRO Europe 2014 Conference, October 7-9.

Executives from AAR’s business segments in London, Paris, Chicago and Singapore will be available at Booth #578. Reporters and editors are encouraged to stop by or schedule interviews in advance to learn more about AAR’s single-source, comprehensive offerings for commercial airlines, which include wheels and brakes, landing gear and component repair services, aerostructures and interiors, and supply chain management. AAR’s advanced, lightweight cargo containers and pallets are used by nearly every airline in the world, with market-leading fuel and weight savings provided by its European subsidiaries, Nordisk (Norway) and Telair (Germany).

New Supply Chain Hub in Europe
In May, AAR opened a new 24/7 facility at the Brussels Airport where it provides power-by-the-hour support for 13 new customers and AOG and other parts requirements for customers in Europe, as well as the expanding markets in the Middle East and Africa. For example, the new hub is being used to support AAR’s recently announced five-year contract with Kenya Airways. In recent years, AAR has increased its global supply chain infrastructure, which also includes operations in Chicago, Singapore, Indianapolis, and Toronto.

Exclusive Distributor of Eaton Parts
AAR’s MRO Europe booth will feature a display of Eaton parts now being distributed exclusively by AAR under a new 10-year agreement that goes into effect October 8.

AAR executives will be participating in the following panel discussions at the conference on October 8:

10:15 a.m. -- Peter Chapman, Chief Commercial Officer, will participate in the panel “MRO for Aging Aircraft.” The session will examine what airlines need to do to prolong the lifecycle of their aircraft rather than purchase new planes.

11:30 a.m. -- Carl Glover, Vice President of Sales, Aviation Supply Chain, will join the session, “Latest Trends in Supply Chain Management.” The discussion will focus on how companies can transform their supply chain processes to reduce costs, streamline workflows and improve efficiency.

“Every day, our job is to keep planes flying safely and reliably. But the breadth of our services has allowed us to go further, adding value with built-in efficiencies that save airlines money without compromising quality,” Chapman said. “We are always looking for new ways to innovate and to stay close to the customer to provide for faster, more reliable service.”
