Rotable Repairs and Aircrafters, Inc. sign exclusive European Distribution Agreement at Farnborough

Aircrafters, Inc., a New Castle, Delaware based leading supplier of commercial Aircraft Wheels and Brakes and Rotable Repairs, a South of England based Aviation Wheel and Brake repair specialists agree on an exclusive stocking agreement.

The long-term and exclusive consignment agreement provides both companies with the ability to offer key benefits to their European customer base, which includes a significant inventory of lucrative and relevant materials, serviceable parts and new advance exchange options when urgently required.

The new agreement allocates Rotable Repairs exclusive rights to a large inventory managed out of their own Southend-on-Sea based facility, enabling them to access a pool of wheel and brake materials from the likes of Goodrich, Messier and Honeywell, whilst servicing a range of aircrafts such as B737’s, B757’s, B767’s, A320 and A321.

Bryan Croft, Director, Rotable Repairs said: “We are excited to be able to offer our current clientele with a new level of support. The additional materials will be predominately available for sale but will also add an enhanced customer experience for those looking to lease, take advanced exchanges and position stock at line stations. Our aim being to reduce lead times, increase availability and assist our customers by helping them continue their day to day operation without disruption”

Aircrafters will experience a passive increase in sales and access to a previously undeveloped European customer base, allowing them to provide materials into Europe through more logistically sound means.

Greg Coffield, Vice President, Aircrafters added: “We are very pleased with Rotable Repairs’ knowledge of the customer base in the European Aviation Market and the shared vision on how this joint effort will better support both of our customer base.”

The agreement was signed off during the Farnborough International Airshow 2016 and is worth an estimated 4 million USD in total.

Rotable Repairs ‘look to the sky’ following re-brand

Bryan said: “The new company logo has been redesigned to address some of the issues with identification, reproduction and foot print. Even though the previous branding incorporated the company name, it was a secondary item that the eye fell to after the RR image.”

The re-brand was the result of a creative partnership between Rotable Repairs and Design Agency, Page Creative, Based in Basildon, Essex.

Paul, Lead Designer said: “We’re really happy that the re-brand has had such a positive impact to-date. Rotable Repairs have an invested interest in keeping traditional elements a strong focus within their business, as well as their brand, which lead us to create an update of the existing orange and black logo design.”

The Aircraft Wheel and Brake Specialists have since seen an influx of additional out-of-season work, allowing the extension of their new brand to cross a range of mediums such as an overhaul of on-site signage, branding materials, vehicle graphics, brochures and an up-dated stand for their upcoming attendance at MRO Europe on Wednesday 14 October 2015.

Ban on new applications for FAA foreign repair stations

Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA) has launched a new survey to measure the impact of the ban on new foreign repair station certificates. U.S. Congress prohibited the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) from acting on foreign repair station certificate applications submitted after 3 August 2008, because the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) had not finalised repair station security rules. The ban is an unprecedented example of punishing the industry for a federal agency’s inaction. Reportedly US aviation companies are barred from tapping into rapidly expanding overseas markets, which is hindering job creation and growth in the country.
