Independent aircraft component parts, repair, and supply chain solutions provider, AJW Group, has signed an agreement with eVTOL jet developer, Lilium.
The agreement is to develop global material services and distribution to support the Lilium Jet’s global aircraft operations and Lilium’s Aftermarket Services Business.
Lilium is developing an all-electric vertical take-off and landing jet which began production in late-2023.
The partnership will include the management of Lilium’s eVTOL spares inventory, the delivery of warehouse and logistics services, repair and asset management, and AJW Group serving as the exclusive parts distributor for Lilium’s worldwide customers.
Material management will be a core component of Lilium’s Aftermarket Service Business, comprising also training, digital, ground operations, and in-service support functions.
Scott Symington, chief commercial officer of AJW Group, said: “Innovation is one of our core values at AJW, deeply embedded in the fabric of our operations.
“We are driven to pioneer revolutionary products, strategically positioning the group at the forefront of transforming aviation efficiency.
“Our partnership with Lilium marks a significant stride towards realising this vision and steering the industry towards a more sustainable aviation future.”
Sebastien Borel, chief commercial officer of Lilium, said: “This is a very important step as we advance towards our planned entry into service in 2026, and a major milestone in the development of our strategic and comprehensive support offerings for our customers.
“AJW’s proven world-class expertise in material management and exemplary warehouse and logistics services align seamlessly with our commitment to excellence.
“Together, we look forward to driving innovation, efficiency, and sustainability in the aviation sector, showcasing our collective dedication to delivering cutting-edge solutions and supporting our customers with attractive unit economics.”
Lilium states that as the jet enters into service and the global fleet size grows, the firm is expecting material profit contribution in recurring revenue from its Aftermarket Service Business.
