Provider of supply chain solutions for the aerospace and defence industry, FDH Aero (FDH), has announced a new consignment agreement between FDH brand PDQ Airspares and Garuda Maintenance Facility (GMF) AeroAsia.
The agreement, signed at MRO Asia-Pacific 2023, allows PDQ to place inventory in GMF’s warehouse and allows them to consume directly from the stock.
Consignment customers then purchase the inventory only after they have consumed it.
Consignment benefits include reduced freight costs, reduced costs associated with paying multiple suppliers, and the peace of mind of having stock on hand at all times.
Paul Rice, PDQ Airspares’ managing director, said: “Today’s announcement highlights the continuing investments we’re making to simplify the supply chain for our aerospace and defence customers.
“Together with GMF, the partnership provides a platform to support our continued growth throughout the Asia-Pacific region, which has the largest aviation market growth potential in the world. It’s a win-win.”
Rice added: “This agreement is a prime example of our commitment to the growth and success of our partners.
“We’ve found the consignment model provides real benefits to our customers’ business, and we believe it will help ensure GMF continues to be a leading service provider to airlines operating across Asia-Pacific.”
Based in Tangerang, Indonesia, GMF AeroAsia is one of the largest aircraft MRO companies serving the Asia-Pacific region, and employs more than 4,000 people in offices around the world.
