AJW Group opens regional support hub in Turkey

AJW Group has opened a new regional support hub and office located in Istanbul – called AJW Turkey.

The opening comes in response to growing demand for a full-service local office, operating in the local time zone, according to AJW Group. The company termed Turkey and the surrounding Eurasia region as one of its “priority markets”.

AJW Turkey will aim to deliver the full suite of AJW’s support solutions to companies in Turkey and the wider region. It will primarily support AJW Group’s regional customers, initially as a local extension of AJW’s customer support, offering access to an inventory of Airbus and Boeing spare parts valued at US$500 million. Services include engines and major assets, contractual support negotiations, MRO services, and nose-to-tail support solutions.

AJW Turkey is expected to expand with inventory located in Istanbul to support operational demands across the region and beyond. It will be led by Umit Caymaz (pictured above) as managing director.

Caymaz brings over 15 years of aviation experience with previous roles at Onur Airlines and MNG Airlines in Turkey, in addition to roles at several global aviation support companies, including GA Telesis.

Based in Istanbul, Caymaz is responsible for the growth and business development activities of AJW Group’s services within the region. He said: “I am honoured to join the world-leading AJW team and grow the AJW business in Turkey and beyond. My experience in the used serviceable material (USM) market and belief that exemplary customer service is paramount to success means I am confident that the full nose-to-tail service we offer will deliver an enhanced level of customer support locally that exceeds our customers’ expectations and builds the AJW brand presence within the region.”

AJW Group’s chairman Christopher Whiteside commented: “We are delighted to welcome Umit to AJW and announce the opening of AJW Turkey. Umit brings a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the Turkish and Eurasia aviation markets and exceptional experience in developing and executing regional sales strategies, whilst delivering exemplary customer service. We welcome Umit to his new role and are excited to see the growth and success that our new regional office will bring our valued customers in Turkey and the development of Umit’s expansion road map in the region.”
