Press Release hub banner blue with title in red white and blueAvAir, an industry-leading inventory solutions provider for the aviation aftermarket, has entered an agreement with Sabena technics to acquire the MRO’s surplus inventory, including both consumables and expendables in new condition.

This agreement covers both airframe & component surplus materials used for heavy maintenance on various AIRBUS family, ATR and C130 aircrafts. They will be made available to AvAir customers globally, as many aircraft are requiring maintenance checks to go back into service after being parked due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thanks to its own in-house component shops in Europe and Asia, Sabena technics can deliver flexible and efficient services guaranteeing high availability and reduced TATs.

“By selling our surplus, we mainly aim to optimize our inventory. It allows us to invest and further expand our stocks so we can better serve our customers,” said Ludovyc Lecherbonnier, vice president of component solutions for Sabena technics. “We are very pleased with the solution AvAir has provided us and are delighted to keep strengthening our partnership of many years.”

“We’re happy to continue to meet Sabena technic’s needs through our custom-fit solutions,” said Mike Bianco, CEO of AvAir. “Our strategic partnership is a win-win for our customers who will continue to receive top quality parts and service.”
