As its capacity continues to grow, Boeing begins its gradual retirement of Aviall brand, to further advance its supply chain.

Who is Aviall and what services does it currently provide within the aviation industry?

Acquired by Boeing in 2006, Aviall became a part of Boeing’s supply chain capability to provide aftermarket parts, equipment and services within the aviation industry, which Aviall has been doing since 1932. 

Currently the company serves: business aviation, general aviation, commercial customers and defence customers around the world.

What does the retirement of the Aviall brand mean for Boeing?

The retirement of Aviall, comes as part of Boeing’s plans to integrate and align its businesses under the Boeing brand and systems, to better serve its customers. Parts, equipment and supply chain solutions previously sold by Aviall will now be offered directly through Boeing’s own aerospace aftermarket supply chain services.

We will work closely with customers and suppliers to help them realize the benefits of the industry’s most integrated, optimized and responsive global supply chain.”
