MIAMI, FL– Recognizing AMETEK MRO’s comprehensive global repair and overhaul expertise for Airbus A320 and Boeing 737, 757 and 767 aircraft, the AJW Group has signed a three-year strategic partnership agreement with AMETEK to provide supplementary component repair and overhaul services that support AJW’s global fleet of more than 900 aircraft under contract and its expanding range of repair services.

AMETEK MRO was selected for this important contract for its focus on improving turn-around-times and its highly competitive pricing, which includes volume discounts. AMETEK MRO businesses in Florida and the Midwest, including Aero Components International (ACI), Avtech Avionics & Instruments (AAI), High Standard Aviation (HSA), Southern Aeroparts and Drake Air, will deliver premium services to AJW, a leading provider of aircraft support worldwide.

Ian Foster, Repair Vendor Manager at AJW Aviation, acknowledges the important role that skilled repair shops play in AJW’s delivery of world-class services:

“We have had an excellent business relationship with AMETEK MRO that spans more than 15 years and have worked closely with AMETEK to shape the scope of our on-going relationship. It is important for us to secure top-flight repair capabilities from skilled, OEM-trained, technicians and engineers. AMETEK provides that for us.”

“We rigorously audit our repair shops annually to ensure that we not only receive the highest standards of workmanship but also enjoy commercially beneficial terms that help us achieve our objectives of improving efficiency, guaranteeing dispatch reliability, and reducing direct maintenance costs for our international customer base.”

The AMETEK MRO capabilities AJW plans to utilize include those in the areas of electromechanical, hydraulics, pneumatics, environmental, heat transfer, fuel pumps and controls, avionics and instruments.
