During this week’s MRO Americas event in Dallas, Texas, Safran and AJW Group signed a contract to maintain electrical power generators, electrical contactors and ventilation systems equipment.
This contract covers more than 350 Airbus A320 and A330, including AJW Group’s flagship customers’ fleets.
This is an exclusive contract for a period of five years and Safran Electrical & Power will repair around 50 of its APUs as well as all the electrical contactors, whereas Safran Ventilation Systems will maintain more than 100 ventilation systems (avionics fans, skin air valves, brake cooling fans) each year.
Once repaired, the equipment will be shipped to AJW’s headquarters in the UK. Safran as the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) will provide state-of-the-art repair improving drastically the reliability of the components.
“We are delighted to strengthen our partnership on MRO with AJW Group – a client with which we have had a strong relationship for many years. Such achievement and such renewal of cooperation is the result of a constant dedication for delivering the best possible service, highest level of quality and the expected level of performance of an aviation equipment manufacturer”, said Vincenzo Guerriero, VP Customer Services and Support at Safran Electrical & Power and Safran Ventilation Systems.
“We are pleased to be collaborating with Safran on the A320 and A330 electrical generators, contactors and ventilation systems,” said Barry Swift, Senior Vice President Operations at AJW Group. “The contract with Safran exemplifies AJW’s strategy and commitment to providing our global customers with seamless supply chain management, the highest quality of component repairs and impressive turn around times to meet the demands that operators need to maximise their operations.”
