AJW Group has signed a major supply chain management contract with Bombardier Business Aircraft.  

The long-term agreement will see AWJ undertake all repair management for Bombardier’s rotable inventory in what it says is “a major strategic win for the company”.

A key feature of the contract is the strategic sourcing of repairs from OEMs and MROs, including AJW’s maintenance hub for component repair and overhaul service, AJW Technique.

AJW will manage the repair process back-shop, optimising performance, and efficiency of the services while reducing operating and total life cycle costs for Bombardier business aircraft.

The contract with airframe OEM, Bombardier, represents a major expansion of AJW’s portfolio by the introduction of a new platform.
