Airbus subsidiary Satair Group’s tailor-made AMI solution is made to optimize inventory management by ensuring that high-usage and non-repairable parts are automatically replenished at Aeroman’s facilities, guaranteeing parts availability and decreasing inventory stock levels.
With a modern facility located in El Salvador International Airport, Aeroman provides maintenance services to A320 Family operators from the United States, Mexico, Central and South America. After two years of working with the AMI service, Aeroman is ready to extend the cooperation with Satair Group and to expand the scope of the service.
“By utilizing the AMI service, Aeroman has streamlined the supply chain, cut down administrative cost and created a better order flow for our customers,” said Edison Viteri, Supply Chain Director at Aeroman. “We have managed to reduce critical ad hoc orders and have optimized our inventory planning to the benefit of our customers. With AMI we have enhanced the availability of parts resulting in the reduction of material shortages and aircraft downtime. This is a key factor in offering first-class maintenance services.”
According to Paul Lochab, CCO of Satair Group, “Satair Group provides the best possible maintenance and customized supply-chain solutions to customers, and AMI is a perfect example of this. The aircraft industry requires the utmost attention to detail in logistics and inventories and AMI has taken that to a new level. We are happy to celebrate Aeroman’s first two years of AMI operation and look forward to our continued collaboration.”
With 2,400 employees in El Salvador, Central America, Aeroman has been providing world-class heavy maintenance repairs and avionics and interiors modification programs for over 30 years. Recently, Aeroman built a new and fifth hangar to service wide body aircraft. Two A330s along with several A320s are already being serviced here.
Airbus Material & Supply Chain Services and Satair are part of Satair Group, a 100% stand-alone company and Airbus subsidiary with $1.3 billion revenue, more than 1,000 employees worldwide and a vision to become the global market leader in the civil aircraft parts management business in 2017.
