Satair, an Airbus Services company and world leader in the commercial aerospace aftermarket, and SR Technics a world leading MRO provider based in Zurich, have signed a multi-year contract for Satair’s Integrated Material Services (IMS) solution; an integrated supply chain service to support SR Technics’ base maintenance activities on Airbus A320 aircraft.
The service covers an initial expendable parts scope of thousands of part numbers comprising Airbus Proprietary Parts, Standard Hardware and Vendor Parts and is effective from April 2023.
Satair’s IMS service offers an end-to-end supply chain solution that includes planning, sourcing, purchasing and logistics for covered expendables required in the aircraft maintenance lifecycle.
IMS was introduced by Satair as a strategic initiative to respond to customers growing requirements for an integrated expendable inventory. This enables customers to focus on their core activities of operating and/or maintaining the aircraft. IMS is a flexible and customisable solution that is developed in close collaboration with the airline to create a true partnership. With IMS, Satair is directly involved in supporting aircraft availability, which goes well beyond a traditional customer-supplier relationship.
Jean-Marc Lenz, CEO of SR Technics, says: “We are excited to expand our business relationship with Satair and look forward to continuing reaping the benefits of our long-term partnership in our daily operations and maintenance of A320 fleets.”
Paul Lochab, Satair, CCO of Satair, says “Having done business together for over two decades and being a preferred supplier to SR Technics, Satair is proud to deliver increasingly specialised supply chain solutions to SR Technics and engage in even closer collaboration on the operations of their new Malta facility.”
