AAR Corporation, an aviation support company that was founded in 1951 and supplies a wide range of services and products to the government, defense, and aerospace industries, has recently entered into an agreement with UTC Aerospace Systems in order to manage and overlook distribution necessities as well as to support the Japanese military aircraft in Japan by stocking inventory of defense parts. UTC Aerospace Systems serves as one of the world’s biggest suppliers of technologically advanced defense and aerospace products.
"Our number one priority is delighting our customers and meeting their needs as effectively as possible with the best aftermarket solutions and service,"
said the Vice President of Aftermarket for UTC Aerospace System, Ajay Agrawal.
"We are pleased to work with AAR to help meet the critical needs of the Japanese military segment."
Under this multi-year distribution agreement, AAR Corporation will be offering electric systems, environmental and engine controls, as well as propeller and actuation systems which will support military aircraft platforms such as the C-130, F-15, E-2C, as well as AWACS. This deal will significantly strengthen the relationship between AAR Corporation and UTC Aerospace Systems as its inventory and parts support for foreign military customers expands from its current global supply chain. This distribution agreement will be building upon AAR Corporation’s current existing business in the Japanese military segment. AAR Corporation has been selected in recent years as the exclusive supplier of Jet Fuel Starter (JFS) and Auxiliary Power Unit (APS) accessories and parts for specific military aircrafts operation in that region.
“As an independent provider of aviation aftermarket services, relationships with OEMs like UTC Aerospace have become important to our growth strategy and expands the value operators receive as part of our aftermarket support solutions,”
said the Chief Operation Officer at AAR Aviation Services, John Holmes.
