AAR has opened a new parts warehouse in Shanghai, China to further improve the delivery of crucial aircraft components to operators and MRO providers in the country’s booming domestic aviation market.
The supply chain hub will stock factory-new airframe and engine components from OEMs including Eaton, Unison, UTAS, Meggitt and Lord, which AAR says will fulfil the needs of “just about every type of aircraft operating in China today”. The new facility follows another opened recently by Illinois-based AAR in Dubai.
China is forecast to be the world’s fastest-growing aviation market, said Eric Young, senior vice-president of AAR OEM aftermarket Solutions. “As a result, serving and capturing aftermarket opportunities in the Chinese market is of the highest priority for our commercial OEM partners. This new Shanghai warehouse will enhance the service we provide customers in China and, in turn, improve our ability to execute China growth strategies jointly developed with our OEM partners.”
