Collins Aerospace has awarded Fokker Services a seven-year overhaul and repair contract.
Fokker Services will support a mix of pneumatic components at its Americas facility in LaGrange, Georgia, ensuring the reliability of aircraft platforms including the Airbus A300, Boeing 747 and 767, Embraer ERJ135 and ERJ145, and Fokker 50 and 60.
“We have a diverse catalogue of pneumatic MRO capabilities,” said Fokker Services Americas’ managing director Craig Winter. “By supporting a broad mix of components for Collins Aerospace, we are their one-stop shop and simplify their supplier base when it comes to repairs. We are well equipped to take on a vast range of part repairs, all while ensuring a seamless redelivery schedule with our well-established supply chain network.”
Fokker Services Americas’ pneumatic MRO capabilities include use of its on-site test stands, such as the eddy current dynamometer air starter test stand, air driven pump test stand and air cycle machine test cell. According to the company, these help “to cut down turnaround times and ensure products are delivered in optimal airworthy condition”.
Collins Aerospace’s director, repair services supply chain management, power and controls James Lyman said: “We welcome Fokker Services Americas to their expanded role as a critical partner in Collins’ third party MRO network. Their broad range of MRO capabilities will support Collins’ strategy to manage the lifecycle of our products.”
Fokker Services and Collins Aerospace have collaborated for many years. In 2015, Fokker Services Americas became the official partner for on-site ball bearing air cycle machine maintenance. Fokker Services also has an MRO license agreement with Collins Aerospace for mechanical systems and power & controls products, as well as an OEM parts supply agreement for electrical power generation products.
